thanks for the reply yeah right ;-)
the thing does not like to idle at the correct idle speed,
today we had another look, and to be honest the whole thing is fu<ked, we line it 8 degrees with the V mark on the pulley, and it runs like a dog, no power at all, gutless, and secondly there is two white marks, someone previously has obviously put a white mark, and tried to time, it, yet its no where near the v, we have put the timing to both the marks, it runs, but its advanced, rough idle, and its no where near the V mark, however it does have power back. and yeah we did disconnect the green spout, it drops the revs, is this normal?
is it possible someone has put a new pulley in (timing case off etc.) and then broken off the key so they dont have to line it up, and pushed the new pulley in, so the timing mark is incorrect?
i didnt think u had to time the engine to the absoulte correct idle, in the manual, it mentions doing the idle after u have done the timing....
