Once again: Leakdown?

Stuck distributor advance worries me. Stuck how? Stuck at full advance? The distributor needs to retard timing on boost or else detonation, which leads to the nightmarish broken rings and melty pistons as seen in photos I posted earlier.

So you want to buy this car? Fine, great, you have a willing group of enablers here. You simply can't make a good decision on how to price without leakdown #s IMO.
