Re: Jesus, would someone help?

Cam timing checked - not by me, no. I don't know how to do it, at any rate. Aside from a few hours of idling in my garage, the engine has zero use after a rebuild (no miles, that is).

Re: Jesus, would someone help?

Hi Grubeguy

thought you and your mate had cracked it.

just a thought, are you sure the rev counter is reading right, if its over reading by 500 revs then it would all make sense.

do you have a way of checking it with another one

Tim

Re: Jesus, would someone help?

With another tachometer? I don't have another one, no. Is this a common issue?

I'm told that with the cam I have, an idle at 1500 is common, and about the best I can get. I'm about to replace the turn signal switch assembly, clean up some bad grounds and see about putting the car on the road. If I can drive it around the neighborhood without the car exploding or dieing, I'll be happy. Maybe I can actually drive the thing on a regular basis )
