Engine Performance problem
1962 Ford Thunderbird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
I have a 1957 Ford T-Bird with 312 c.I.D. V-8 that misses on every other cylinder on the distributor cap. A perfect H pattern on the wires going into the cap. No fire on left bank two center and right bank front and rear. Could this be a timing chain problem to run dead on four cylinders yet have good fire on the other four? New: wires, cap, rotor, distributor, plugs, coil. Checked valves (found three bent push rods on left bank not related to missfires). Compression test (all 120 to 130), book says 160. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Kraig O'Hara Longwood, FL
