The trigger points look real clean, just a tiny bit of built up crud around the phonelic things that ride on the shaft. Can not get at the points very easy as the plastic cover get in the way. Cleaned the module with carb cleaner then followed up with contact cleaner. Lubed the pads with a bit of tranny fluid (they were nice and soft). Cleaned the connector with contact cleaner.

Ignition is Pertronix so that should not be an issue. Timing was set at ~5 ATDC with vac off.....goes to ~7 BTDC. Vacuum is good.

I will listen to the injectors in a bit. I usually wait until after 8:00AM on a Sunday before starting projects.
