  thank you very much.

  Two problems left.
  - Low intake manifold pressure 15 inchs Hg....i sprayed ether close to the
4 cyl and the engine accelerated....

**** OK, you got yourself an air leak.
"close to 4 cyl"?  near the intake manifold? fuel injector?
You can play around there until you find the exact spot.
Maybe you can use some heavy oil or grease to temporarily plug the leak.
Your vacuum guage and engine acceleration should tell you if you found the
I'll try and get a vacuum reading on my cars tomorrow. You can use those
numbers as a guide and reference.

  - Low fuel system pressure.
**** I would do that fuel pump volume delivery test before ripping things

  I putted the belt 2 teeth back(from the skipped problem) =   at the marks.
**** I sent you 3 emails with pix of camshaft alignment, flywheel alignment,
and distributor alignment.

You're gonna owe us big time for this . . .we expect dinner at some fancy
Montreal restaurant. I drink lots of fine wine, bring lots of money.

By the way, how was the ride home? What was the engine doing? Any problems
besides no power?
I told you to give us a full report. For this delinquency, you also have to
provide some fine women at the restaurant.
