That picture was taken before I ever ran it. So basically I put a new distributor in and it was only somewhat engauging. Which would make sense why I wasn't getting any power right?

Tim, if what you are saying is actually the issue (which I think it is) then you are my hero

Uh, what are you taking about? You have to pull the distributor gear to get to the fuel pump cam and the cam timing gear. Yes you can just replace the Cam drive gear.


Cam and distributor gear set.

Thanks Fourtrail! I was just finding this pic to back that up.

Great if it is .. You could pull the cap and crank it and see if the rotor is turning evenly.. definitely change oil and filter as all that metal is going to be in the pan and filter..
Now that might not help with compression and with all the metal in there if you could finish the rebuild with barrens/rings.. and be done with it and not have to tare into it again down the line..
good luck

Caused by a bad hardened cam gear on a replacement distributor.

For the record that picture was before I ever put a replacement distributor in. It came like that from the PO.

It might be ONE problem.

But I don't think that distributor gear will have anything to do with his low compression numbers.

That is correct, John. I will still be pulling the heads. Also, I should note that none of the head bolts were loose.

Plan ahead by getting a system to keep the lifters and pushrods in the proper order when you pull the heads. Do't just dump them into a box.

Good egg carton works well, drop the lifter in the egg holder and a hole in the top for the pushrod to stick through

When you pull those rockers and heads, they still have a bolt pattern to follow.

They need to be removed in a certain bolt pattern?

Doesn't mention it in the FSM. Not sure if it makes a difference in those big cast iron heads.

But it couldn't hurt.
