    The compliance fitting gaskets, 29242-83, from the early evos should fit it just fine. Any shop that deals with evos should have some.

    He's timing the retarded or starting timing. You can do that to get it started, but follow up by adjusting the advance timing with a strobe timing light. That's all in the manual. (You will need a...
