Hide-sight 20-20. Did not do either, just used air impact wrench and just got it as tight as I could. Would have been better to do it your way.

Hello, 'It Lives'!!!. Changed the oil and after two cranks the truck fired up. Held rough idle and no back fire. 'Ear timed' the distributor and the idle soothed out. Will run with the points for awhile after setting the dwell and timing with multimeter and timing light. Will go back to the Petronas 1281 electronic points after a bit and when I figure out how to wire around the ballast (Tedster9, I may be looking for more detailed advice).

Hope everything settles down for awhile and we can use it for farm chores and not just mechanic on it. I thank everyone for there concern and input.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
