Finally my cars fixed! But what tha?
You may all remember me having problems with my car after the rebuild and not having a clue as to what the problem was, well I've taken it to a mechanic and $140 later he's fixed the problem for me.
Well I thought it was injecting way too much fuel, but as Bass Crazy said it was the timing, and it was in fact out by 26 degree's! Now what I can't understand is that I have set the base ignition timing about 4 times, as well as use a completely different distributor. The gregories manual says to set the distributor at number 1 while the at TDC... well that was done but it was still miles off! And even though the harmonic balancer had slipped i have remarked it so that it was in the right spot.
Did gregories lie and should I have stuck it at the ignition mark? Or could my mark be at the wrong spot? The mark I put lined up with the mark off another harmonic balancer, and the piston doesn't move from the top when moving the mark between ignition and TDC. Is that correct?
Finally I have me car back with a nice 4 speed to thrash about! :-D
