Plugs/wires/cap/rotor changed out. No start persists. I’m now absolutely (95%) convinced that 8 years parked in a Virginia heat barn with no oil circulating/splashing on the nylon timing gear means the nylon deteriorated and I either jumped a tooth or many teeth.

Time for a 3 piece timing kit, new water pump, thermostat, rad hoses, vac lines, fuel filter, serpentine belts, and related gasket kits.

I just pray I don’t have any internal damage.

Fuckitall. So much for an easy flip. Time to rip off all the accessories. 😎
