Possibly run a little hotter than normal is the only thing I can think of.
I guess thats why the handbrake cable caught on fire... so close to the tri-ys, glad i had an extinguisher handy :)
Any thoughts on the cam run in... by stopping well before the recommended 30min, would this cause any abnormal damage/wear in future. I have not restarted her yet ... only happened a couple of hours ago.
I'm hoping to reset the timing and give another 15-20 min at 2500rpm to properly bed in the lifters... any thoughts on that giving the following spec
CompCams 270S solid flat tappet and Crane solid lifters
.050: 224 - 224
also, could the retarded timing cause it to pre-ignite when ignition was killed ??
