I have not done anything, but cant say what the last guy did, Engine had been idle for awhile prior to him having it. engines are my weak spot.

simply loosen the dizzy (13mm bolt) and turn anti clockwise a small amount, then when running move it untill you get a smooth idle (this will need doing properly with a timing light in the end) but should get you going, VERY common on most Pinto's that have stood for a while.
