cam timing is perfect according to the pics from shawn and the fsm pic that was posted. distributor points to #1 and crank is at tdc. HOWEVER, it idles beautifully and starts up just as good, the problem is, revving up. its slow and unenthusiastic. ??!! i cant explain it. i just ran it a couple seconds again just now with the valve cover off and then checked all marks again. no dice. everything still lines up. no missing either... what now?

ummm, no i didnt check the compression BUT its running fine now. just some stuttering as water finds its way into the cylinder at an idle. the no power issue was from the distributor being one RCH off. i took it for a ride right now and dumped some evil shit in the radiator and its better, all the power has returned, but the head is still warped. :(

gonna do taht shit every time you adjust the cams... all the crusty shit you jar breaks off and all the dust that's flying around gets into your engine. you just need to burn it off, thats all.
