The trouble started after the valve clearance setting....For 200 miles everything is OK, and then you start having problems..... is the camshaft going flat?
When you adjust the valves, do any of the rockers look like they are not lifting as high as others?
How does the oil look, any metallic sparkles?
If one looks low, pull the rocker off and put dial indicator on the lifter and measure lobe lift.
Idle speed is high ( otherwise the bloody thing stalls and driving of is not possible,!)Idle speed too high.
Wrong spark plug heat range.
Fuel too low of octane rating.
Very High outside ambient temps along with High Water temps.
I have used Edelbrock and Crater AFB carbs in the past.Idle speed is high ( otherwise the bloody thing stalls and driving of is not possible,!)
High outside temp yes!
Low octane : 98 Ron together with high temps
Will we tomortow
Yep it was incredibly hot todayI have used Edelbrock and Crater AFB carbs in the past.
The 1 piece baseplate and float bowl made of aluminum does a great job of boiling gasoline in the float bowl.
Opposite of whats wanted when its real hot outside.
Try and get coolant temps at 160-190 F.
It was real hot here the 1st and 2nd week of July.Yep it was incredibly hot today
Right we need your opinion on the following:
Before: engine smooth ; burnouts; 200 miles ( and a messed up trans) ;
After setting valves :
No more capacity to middle low; driving of : engine stalls ; idling for a while then the engine dies; revving engine at idle turning of ignition = detonation/ the thing runs on itself....
Valves too tight?
Set at this way ( not your way I know but I wasn't involved) ticking 1/4 ,turn ; engine off then another 1/4 turn...
Any suggestions ..
