Seven years and four days after I brought her home she's finally running! I've tried a half dozen times since last September to get her to start, but finally got some advice about how to set the distributor up by the injectors firing/spark from the coil.
After 12+ minutes of break-in at 2500 RPM I put the spout back in and she started up and idled fine a couple of more times. Lots of smoking on the outside of the turbo and downpipe, but that stopped after a few minutes. Good oil pressure too.
Had solid brake pedal, so I guess I bled the brakes right! The fan kicked on, but the temp gauge in the car didn't move so I need to look at that to.
No trying to drive her, I was tempted but since I can't get the initial timing right I didn't want to break anything.
