Whew! It runs again. Zivan mods are back too.

I took the 914 in to Alan at A & P Specialties this morning and his techs fixed the timing so the car runs smoothly again. The points were burned and had to be re-timed. The real acid test is if the car fires up tomorrow while getting cold all night. Alan said that if it ran poorly when cold, the block temperature sensor or the pressure sensor is probably having issues. I'll have to do more research on those items.

The other cool piece of news is that the Zivan NG3 charger came back today. I sent it to Electric Conversions to add a "low-power" switch so that it pulls 20 amps or 12 amps from a 115V outlet. The lower power setting will be great for charging at work or at friends' houses where there' s only a 15 amp circuit and there may be a light or two running off the same circuit.
