All it took was a brake booster. Now it stops great.
Too bad the wiring is so bad. It looks like an angry animal got into the wiring harness, but it was really the previous owner. Runs beautifully. It doesn’t backfire in spite of my user name, that’s in reference to a Datsun pickup I drove in high school.
