Good info, preciate it!
Yer right, it has spark so i'll move onto the next. Pretty sure that's my volt reg, but either way its getting bolted to subframe so no worries
Next i'll be pulling the carb, clean, and rejet if needed. Pulling the head off will be later, but will definitely be happening. Once my timing light gets in i'll pull it apart a bit more and make sure there's nothing wonky going on.
PO had taken the aftermarket exhaust off, but i'm debating on putting it back on for a try. just for shits and giggles. He said he burnt the carbon out of the stocker, but i feel like there's still some blocking it up
