    That sounds the most likely reason........................ Bob

    The timing gears aren't straight cut but are cut, for want of a better description, cut on a spiral. Sounds like you didn't allow for the "rotation" of the timing as the dist is seated in the block and the gears "spiral" into position. ..............Bob

  5. Is this car worth buying as an investment?

    By using the term "investment" the OP implied realizing a monetary gain. I think what Joe was saying, in a short form, is it's difficult to turn a profit in the "old car" business and damn near impossible for the unknowing to do so. Others have given the OP very good advice and done so gently. Good for them. OTH, sometimes a cold dose of reality will, in the long run, better serve the subject at hand.................Bob
  6. Is this car worth buying as an investment?

    Only if you love the car and want it to drive it no matter what. From a financial standpoint...........not so much................Bob

    Likely would have changed, in someway, but to me the cadence is too irregular . Likely the hose trick can find the location if not the actual source..............Bob

    It sounds to me the "chirp" isn't a rotational noise but more of a "rattle" or vibration/looseness type noise. Are you sure the dist. clamp bolt is tight? Is something rubbing on/near the dist. Put a length of plastic tubing in your ear and use it as a steth-e-scope to isolate the sound...................Bob

  12. Rebuilding ignition points

    Should work. I suggest you use a small piece of fluxed silver braze foil under the contact and a wire pressing on the contact to keep it in position while cooling. Assuming you will be using a torch it will have to be quite small. You might be able to talk a jeweler into the job. It would be easy peasy for them they have the tools and know how.......Bob
  13. If you need a daily driver that you have to depend on buy a newer dependable car that you can get repaired easily. If you are looking to satisfy an itch and have the funds to have the itch $cratched by someone else whenever it needs attention just buy what you like. Nothing kills a dream faster than having the object of your desires let you down when it's needed the most. lust soon turns to loathing. That works for both things and people. Think about it................Bob
  14. Drone appearance!

    Not mine but someone else's would be OK...................Bob
