    Tractor cam? What would you suggest? Right now I have it shifting at 6K and I don't want to go higher. And it has to have decent street manners too, it's more of a street car than a race car. I'm...

    Thanks. But for some dumb reason I'm about to spend some more money to make it faster. Looking at some aluminum heads with bigger valves. I'm still running stock heads.

    Didn't realize this was about me. I've had the strangest things go on with timing and this motor. Before the rebuild it was reading off the charts, as if the light was clamped on the wrong wire. ...

    He was driving and I followed him about a block in Newport, TN. I didn't notice until I looked at the pictures on the PC that his tag is somewhat local, same as mine (Cocke County). Looked like...

    That sounds easier and more accurate than measuring the clay on the piston when I put it together. I forget, what is considered a safe clearance?

    That picture is from before they were installed. I don't think there is a leaking valve, I get 205 to 210psi cranking compression all around. On the valve I think you see a mark in some carbon...

    The cam is already advanced 2°. So would you take a chance on 4°? I was thinking of retarding it so it's how it's supposed to be. What do my 60' and 330' times tell you?

    My governor is set to shift at 5500rpm at WOT (since it isn't a full manual valve body) so I'd have to be somewhere over 60mph for it to not kick down and stay in 3rd. On second thought, I could...
