    What kinda condition is it in?

    And, if fixing the timing issue was as simple as turning the distributor, wouldn't he have done that already? :shrug:

    If you can test drive it...try loosening the distributor hold down bolt and turning the distributor counter-clockwise while the car is idling. If the idle improves, you'll know that the timing just needs adjusted.
