yj wranger with 350 having problems
hey guys its been awhile but im back. had to put the jeep project on hold for a while but im back at it. just a brief recap - 90 wrangler with a freshly rebuilt 350 bored .40 over and otherwise factory build. was a carbed 350 originally but since already had the tbi wiring set up from the inline 6 that had been in it, we opted to run it tbi. im running the 7747 computer and swapped the injectors from 4.3 injectors to the 350 injectors. fuel pressure is perfect. 14-15 psi. new plugs and wires, aftermarket jeep over-the-frame headers with cherry bombs. great injector pulse, tfi coil (although I believe its too hot of spark due to melting the rotor pin in dist cap twice.) could not get it to base timing of even close to 0 degrees. after lots of hours of messing with distributor and removing timing cover to verify timing marks on the cam and crank gears are dead on, found the harmonic balancer had "walked" and just replaced that tonight. now, we brought cyl 1 to TDC compression stroke, set distributor, and fired it up. fired instantly but ran like ****. got it finally to base timing of 0 degrees, but still wouldn't stay running. revving it up at all shot 3 foot flames out the tbi. its acting like the timing is extremely off, however ive verified cam timing and even tried flipping the dizzy 180, but then it failed to fire at all. I KNOW the dist is set right. however its acting so crazy im bout to pull my hair out.the cam is "supposedly" factory specs for the gen 1 350. nothing modified in the valvetrain. great compression. what the heck could it possibly be?the only way it will rev at all is if its advanced to 10 to 15 degrees btdc. and no matter what I do I can see intermittent flames below the throttle plates. im very much lost for any more ideas. any help with this will be appreciated.
