                        Waiting for my new clutch and other goodies to arrive... Some of the item are out of stock.

                        But I'm getting closer to a 5-speed swap, I'm hoping to be good to go before the picnic.

                            Pull the plugs out and crank it without the plugs in a few seconds. Put a drop of oil down the spark plug hole and crank again. Reinstall plugs and try again. My guess is that when the timing chain guides broke and the car stalled, they tried to start it a whole bunch and washed all the oil off the rings.
