One step forward, three steps back...
We drove around for about 20 minutes through back roads in our subdivision before returning home.
I don't yet have parking brakes so the wheel chock is for extra safety beyond parking it in gear.
Still not content with the idle or the lack of power, I did some work on the car today - changed the oil, plugs and replaced the rotor in the distributor. Car runs roughly but not right. I also can't get the timing right with a light - I'm now wondering if the distributor drive gear is installed wrong. Not sure how to make sure the engine is at #1 when the rotor is pointing to the notch or if it's 180º out. That could be the issue...I've also got a new coil coming tomorrow - two of the three I have got very hot after a short period of time of use. That's usually a bad sign.
