Re: [T3] choices in rebuilding 1971 squareback fi motor

Yes, I agree.  With only 15,000 original miles on the speedo, it does seem a
shame to mess with such a pristine and rare car.  It's your car, not mine but,
if it were mine, I would try to keep it as original as possible.  Not only
would this be a cherished thing to own but by keeping it original its value
would be enhanced and, of course, it will win prizes at shows.
