Hi sorry to bother you again but I have another question for you. I've been told a bunch of things about this motor that people have just taken there words for. Anyways I dont know the year of this nuber anymore and I do know that it has been over hauled since I have just found this out:
new timing chain and gears
new cam which just noticed was a HI-proformance cam
now I have ran ito thesse problems:
distribitor turns backweards - instead rpm coming up as cap turned to carb rpms come down and the rpms comes up when turned to firewall on drivers.
Runs to about 50mph and dies down the road- like its out of gas.
FIRE HITS WHEIDSHIELD AS IT COMES OUT OF THE CARB! Like its out of time.
Here what Ive been told and what I've done:
I was told that the fire was cuz its out of time not in the distribitor but the cam. That the cam be wrong for the truck, 180 out, tooth or 2 off, or I need a hi- pro. Fuel pump. I ruled out the fuel pump cause I thought it would not be coughing flame like that if it was just the pump. Plus I dont want that cam. I took the timing cover off and brought it to compression stroke it lined up at 12 and 12 and looked about.5 a tooth off? I was told that a few went 12 and 12 instead off dot to dot? What years went 12 and 12. And how can I figure how this cam goes back? Thanks alot again jake
