Well, got the intake gaskets changed out tonight. Used FelPro's this time, last time I got a complete kit (was cheaper - for a reason
). Won't be doing that again! She's now running with no backfiring! I am getting some noise I don't like though. First I thought it was intake valves contacting the bore, but I'm not hearing it with the stethoscope on either side and no backfiring, etc., so I'm hoping its just something that is still not bolted down thats making the noise. Next week I'll have time to finish putting her back together and hopefully go for a cruise.
