weve done everything we can do for the valve's and weve done all the seals etc. and weve re done the timing and changed the oil but it still smokes a little,
but now were haveing troubles with the alternator weve tried three different alternators from the wreckers and it will start and go for a while but when it gets turned off it doesnt turn on again and the alternator light is always on. weve checked the wires etc and they all work fine. dads just got it going now (jump start) but it's like the battry doesnt keep charge (it's a new battry) or the alternator isnt charging while it's running. dad's running it so he can see if the alternator is charging.
edit: we changed the oil because dad found out we were using the wrong oil. thats the smoke problem fixed, the timing is still out though. havent checked the alternator yet but it has started a few times since we jump started it earlier.
