Does this pic look correct? I believe my distributor is off a tooth. With #1 at TDC, and the scribed lines lined up on the distributor, and the metal distributor plate, my rotor seams to be pointing at #4 plug wire. When the scribed lines are lined up, the distributor also seams to be turned to the left too far,

Beautiful day for a ride around the Eel River Valley today. High 60's and sunny bright.

Well we had a great time at the ALL British Field Meet in Portland last September over the Labor Day weekend. The car "RUBY" took "First in Class". Also received a ribbon "The Queens Award"from the Central Oregon Coast British Car Club. Only two of these were given out at the show of over 800 vehicles.
All in all a great weekend!!!

I haven't done much recently due to much needed repair work on the daily driver, but as weather clears up and weekends become more free, the goal is to get it back on the road by this summer.

Well, that is a pretty car! It's interesting to see the difference. I'm not sure which one I prefer. One says "traditional and as it should be", and the other says "minimalist and clean". I do like the minimalist approach - and I assume that it is all restorable back to the way it was. I's like to see your interior and engine area. The glimpse of the interior looks nice.

the interior is a bit interesting. i bought the car last July, most all of it in boxes. So it has been a puzzle. i started out with a "sort of" budget. that got shot when i found issues in the engine. So other places got their budget cut. the interior was one of them. i cleaned the interior with Goop hand cleaner and then with an acetone. next i painted everything with Colortone vinyl paint and clear coat. after i decided the rear seats did me no good, so i bought some SS pots to fit in the seat holes and made a hinged cover over the pots. gives me some room to put things and not have them blow out. it may only last a few years which should buy me some time.

on the engine i just got it back together in April. to date i have about 350 miles on it. still sorting thru some things but for the most part it runs great.

Mine left home looking like that almost three years ago. Returned a year and a half later. Today we headed up the coast to cruise among the redwoods and picnic on the beach. Hang in there and dream about the day..
