Just a quick update, regular programming to follow: . . . . . . . .
We spent all day Tuesday, and half a day Wednesday in mechanic shops.
First mechanic in Guadalajara. We were the second mechanics, changing the coil and a fuel filter.
Third one on Tuesday, late Tuesday we moved to another, recommended by the first. Then we spent the night Tuesday parked in front of the fourth mechanic’s shop for the night.
Wednesday he thought that he had found the problem, perhaps a problem, but not the problem. So we came back and he tried to fix other things.
So after a new coil, a new fuel filter, a new distributor rotor, a new fuel pump, some new spark plug wires, a new carburetor gasket, another new coil, a new ignition module, we finally hit the road. We made it a whole 20 miles down the road with no problems, other than engine seemed awfully hot, even though the temperature gauge was well within the normal range. We had some long stop and idle periods because of road construction.
We are now in beautiful and slightly funky Sayulita, and hoping that all is well.
