Dodge a100 ignition

Playing with the fine 318 v8 in the DodgeA100 seemed like a nice thing to do.
The ignition needed new points and timing. Now it runs much better. Getting to the distributor is a struggle with the doghouse in the way.

I did remove the sides to check the plugs and timing mark, but left the lid and back as there were quite a few electric components mounted on it. Timing was off by about 5 degrees too advanced. Maybe I should have checked this earlier. Also fixed the doorhandle. I thought the mechanism had broken but it turned out to be only one small bolt.
