Re: [Fwd: Re: [T3] won't quite start]

When I pulled the valve covers off I got a bit of a surprise, I was full of
oil with gas mixed in it! after I checked the valves I replaced the oil but
it still won't start. I was wondering how I am going to time it when the
wires from the timing light won't reach the battery? as for where I live,
it's in portland, oregon s.e.. to be little closer if anyone can help me
find the problem with my t3.
