No one can seem to put the timing at factory specs and time it so advanced that it overheats at highway speeds. It has had most of the electronics replaced. ECM, something in the distributor, and the distributor it's self has been replaced. It runs fine until it gets warmed up, then at highway speeds you can hear intermittent ignition knocking and it lurches. Once your going slower it stops. I've had several reputable mechanics look at it, and the now refuse to look at it.
