Inner valve springs in, timing is way out??
I finally fitted the inner valve springs today, and cranked up this arvo, but it was idling way high. I checked the timing at a lower 900 rpm, and i have 36 degrees initial. If i rev up a bit, its usual advance comes in and goes past 50 total. I have checked the dizzy gear pin and balancer, but all fine. It acually runs SWEET at 36 initial, but was hard to turn over. All leads are in order. It is like the dizzy jumped a gear on the cam, but that is impossible without breaking a tooth or something. Can the inside of the distributor assembley slip around somehow putting the timing out.
Is there something i am missing?
