My Garage
Thanks for the info. Typical of many cars I've worked on over the years the problem seemed to resolve itself yesterday. When I got home I hit the key one time and it fired up and never died. I did adjust the screws on the carb to make it run a little more rich and it seems very happy. I still wonder if the distributor needs to be replaced. It is the original one for the engine I believe. If I start to have issues again I'll check the vac advance right away. At this point it's the only think I have not replaced. Now I just have to get the brakes back together and there will be one more GT/CS back on the road! There is a lot of white smoke coming out the tail pipes. Which could be a number of things. I need to get the car out and run it. It's spent a lot of time just sitting since 2006.

07 GT Convertible
68 GT/CS
There's always room for more!
