Thanks Keith. I liked your choice of mounting location the best and went with it.

Anti climatic end to a busy day. Got everything buttoned up with the engine around 7:30pm. Battery hooked up, everything seemed to function electrically including my headlight relays. Tried firing the engine up and I have a timing issue. Had some backfiring out the headers. Played with it for about 5 min and killed the battery. Guess I should have put it on the charger last night.

Going to play with it some more tomorrow afternoon and see if I can get her to fire up.

My morning job canceled so I re checked TDC and found I was 180 out.

Feel the Thunder!



Edit, you must click on the picture to feel the thunder.

I do have a few issues I am sure. After it ran and got warm is died. Will restart put I have to keep goosing the throttle. Likely a vac leak I am thinking but could also be a fuel flare connection that started sucking air. Either way STOKED!!

I know how excited you must be. I sure was.

Strong work, man.

It was running on manifold in the video. I had 15 min just now to play with it. Heres what I know. The only way it will stay running at idle is with the idle speed turned all the way up and the advance pushed off the scale. I am thinking I have to have a vac problem somewhere which is allowing it to suck air. Thinking with idle speed all the way up and advance up its compensating for the air leak. Mixture screws are 2.5 turns out and all 8 are firing.

Going to tune on it tomorrow and plug all the vac lines and see what I get.

Matt, question about tuning with manifold vac. With ported you are supposed to plug the advance line when setting the timing. I would imagine with manifold you leave it connected when tuning since it effects your timing at idle, correct? Do you still set your initial time it like you do with ported?

The timing gets set the same, wether ported or manifold, the line gets plugged.

Yep ^^^^

MoC have you put a vac gauge on a manifold source, yet? What's your idle pressure?

Instead of plugging the vacuum line, hook a vacuum gauge to the manifold vac. carb port. It will serve the same function as a plug in the line .
