First up was a compression test to ensure all is well.
No 1 - 65psi
No 2 - 60psi
No 3 - 60psi
No 4 - 60psi
The next job was to replace the W14 spark plugs with ................
Autolite 3077 long reach plugs gapped at 30 thou.
During the following test drive I was surprised that there was no miss to indicate the timing was not 100%. These plugs require perfect timing, and Matilda is the only one out of 3 Chevs that I have fitted 3077's to that did not require a timing adjustment.
The distributor points were cleaned and reset at 23 thou.
The last job on the agenda was to get the brake light working. The globe looked ok but there was no power to the socket.
Traced the wire back to the brake switch, no power going in, no power going out. Cleaned up the power in terminal, success, we had power coming into the switch.
Stripped and cleaned the power out connection, success, we now have a brake light.
All the was left now was the mandatory pictures of both cars together.
