How are vaccinations going in Europe?

How are vaccinations going in Europe?
- Hungary has slotxo become the first EU country to inoculate people with the Chinese Sinopharm
vaccine, not yet authorised at EU level. Hungary’s right-wing nationalist government has criticised
the slow pace of the EU’s vaccine rollout. It has ordered five million doses of the Sinopharm jab
so far. With a 10m population, Hungary is also using the Russian Sputnik V jab - again not
authorised by the EU. Covid infections are rising in Hungary – its death toll so far is 14,450.
Neighbouring Serbia, not in the EU, is also using the Chinese and Russian vaccines
- Ukraine has just started vaccinating, using the AstraZeneca/Oxford jab. It registered 8,147
Covid cases in the past 24 hours – its highest figure since mid-January. It has shunned Sputnik V,
as it regards Russia as an aggressor, with the conflict in eastern Ukraine unresolved
- Vaccines are top of the agenda at a virtual EU summit later today. There is still much concern
about supplies: AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech are racing to expand capacity to meet the huge
- The idea of vaccine passports is gaining momentum – Israel already has them. Those who have
had the jab, or who have had Covid – so who have antibodies – could potentially visit more places,
events and travel abroad. Greece, Cyprus and Austria like the idea, hoping to salvage summer
tourism. But Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and EU Commission chief Ursula von der
Leyen are sceptical - they worry that data on protection from Covid remains incomplete.

Sorry to disappear like that, folks, but we had an ice storm that took us offline for two weeks! We also suffered without power for 6 days, but I'm here to tell you not having 'net access was worse!
No, the problem persists. I did some more diagnostic work; I hooked up a timing light on each of the plug wires, pointed it at a wall, and watched the pulses. I can see the misses, and they occur on all cylinders (though they seem to happen more often on #2 and #3). With the replaced coil and wires, this suggests that the igniter is bad since it's the only thing in the circuit which hasn't been replaced.
Unfortunately, the FSM has no procedure to check the igniter, and my impression has always been that an igniter either works or it doesn't; I've never heard of one failing intermittently. Just in case, I have a new one on the way, but would appreciate any insights on this.

... put some oil in to thin it some at the locking hubs...
Oil will have different chemical properties and won't mix anyway. Better to just clear the workings.

Hey Russell! Great to see your expertise still hangs out here!
Are these "superceded" part #'s listed somewhere on the forum??
What you still got left at the Montero Ranch? I might be heading back out to Tahoe this summer.

Rod knock is low toned, from down low. Noisy lifter tick sounds like a sewing machine.

I used to use Standard Motor Products LR-34, a nice little dual circuit relay, but it's no longer available.
This looks like a nice little kit:Summit
Re: Dodgr Raider Leaf Spring Bushing Question

They are the same. I have installed a Montero Sport rear axle and springs in my 1988 Mighty Max. I have a box of poly bushings that I may use, but have installed the Sport parts for now. All these are Mitsubishi products...Dodge did not make the Raider.
The Mitsubishi Raider truck, aka Dodge Dakota, is not applicable to the question.
