    Shouldnt do any harm in painting the tanks. But dont go heavy on the fins or it wont transfer heat as well.

    Shouldn't have jumped timing, almost impossible on an f134. They are gear driven timing and do not have a chain like other cars. Check your plug wires. Looking forward to pics!

    Check to see if you have spark at the plugs as your trying to start it. I like to use HArborfrieght in-line spark checkers. They work great.
