    After a month of waiting, the mechanic is finally available tommorow. This is the first major tune up since I got the car a month ago. Here is the thing I would like to check out:

    - oil pressure gauge is always at zero. (check pressure)
    - funny sweet smell after the engine is warm. (check for coolent leak)
    - exccesive smoke coming out one side of the exhaust. (check engine)
    - engine stalls if I go "rev, rev". (check a/f ratio)
    - tacho gauge needle gose all over the place. (no solution)
    - paints coming of the engine. (repaint?)

    can't wait to see the final bill.

    Get the carb float levels checked and adjusted, the distributor advance and the phasing read and checked. (if it's a 3 lobe, not necessary on 6 lobe), and of course all other proper servicing and valve clearances, and chain tensions etc etc.

    Dinos can be so nice when right, but so nasty when wrong.....

    There is an adjustment to the oil pressure by the oil filter, according to
    the owners manual.

    Do you have a dino script on your horn push button?. I am looking for a source to buy one.

    Difference between superformance and re-originals prices on wiring loom?
    why 3 times the price?
