    Took my TDr off the jack stands for the season and installed a new “flame thrower” distributor and coil to replace a suspected faulty DVDA distributor. Wow. No more stalls at idle. I. can actually tune the carb and it has an effect! Feels like I have a completely different car. Took her our for a short drive around the block (about 7 miles in my neck of the woods) and she’s running great!

    That’s great news. Glad she’s running even better than before.
