I had two 099 distributors delivered. The guy had two and just sent me the other one. Using pieces from all three I think I created a good one. it seems to hold. One had a broken weight inside. One and a weak spring. It starts right up now. Still having trouble with the Weber carb. High idle speed, 850, and will not adjust lower, tried idle jets from 45-65 with no real change in mix screw. New problem though. Looks like rear main just sprouted a large leak. Trans comes out this week.
