Nigel's story, et. al.
I also received another NOS DV profile ignition switch.
A little more time was spent trying to adjust the timing to get the engine to run correctly to no avail. There's a little more 'knock' in the engine on the right side than I'd prefer and the right side carburetor isn't happy. I think it's time to bite the bullet and swap the engines. I have to swap the fan housings, chokes, coil, and heater boxes/exhaust when the engine moves over. The fan housing is the most complicated part.
I also have the axle boot seals on my list of things to do since the pair on the car leak.
Spent a little time digging through the paperwork that was left in the glove box and found registration for most of the years of the car's function up until 1978 when it was parked until extracted last year. I have the California registration from 65 until 78, skipping 1976 when the car wasn't driven.
I suspect that the fried wires in the original ignition column are the culprit, not the engine as the PPO expected.
