Fixing the timing on my Corrado

ignition timing gun and crows foot socket
My Corrado has been feeling a bit slower and rougher than usual recently and running a bit hotter. I bought myself a cheap timing gun from ebay and went about fixing it.

The crows foot socket is a good tool to have if you’ve grown attached to the skin on your knuckles because it’s kind of hard to get at the bolt holding the distributor tight and pulling the throttle open with a shoelace to keep revs at about 2000-2500 is my finest piece of caveman engineering.

Now that the timing is set properly it feels so much smoother and responsive.

The simplest ideas are always the best …and cheapest. I needed to lock the flywheel in place to undo the bolts and this was the best option I could come up with. It worked really well.

Some new seats for my Corrado

I’ve just picked up these leather seats to go in my Corrado. They were on ebay for a good price and only a few miles away so it would have been rude not to.
