did anything with this car we performed a cold compression
test. The results were poor, ranging from 111 to 129 psi.
When we test drove your car we found it was pulling pretty hard to the left and there was also a
fair amount of 'clunking' from the front suspension. On
closer inspection, we found the front right shock absorber
virtually collapsed and the sway bar bushings were MIA. A
couple of significant coolant leaks were observed, one
from the radiator by the lower right mounting stud and
also a leak where the expansion tank had rusted through.
The car is significantly down on power. This isn't being
helped by the low compression, but the carbs are also out
of sync and the ignition is weak. Finally, we noted water
in the fuel filter bowl, something which is currently
under investigation. We will be addressing all of these
issues over the coming days.
