the car saga continues: i got the ignition timing fixed (was 20° btdc, supposed to be 10°), and is now 8°). now it fails the 15mph no emission tests (was 67 ppm, maximum is 1088, it's now 2235). argh! now i get to decide if it is (a) worth spending $45 to get the problem diagnosed, and (b) worth spending any additional money to get the problem fixed. this solution is looking more and more tempting. the blue book value of the car is in the neighborhood of $1,700.
