    Hi:
    It was clearly these two cylinders that were missing and had low compression. I talked to the shop that did my work and he said he had seen a lot of chevy engines with this same problem and left it up to me as to pulling the other head. He has done it both ways. I hope I didn't make a bad decision.
    thanks.

    I'm assuming that your Mallory is a dualpoint, if so along with your other problems, you could have point gap problems. I'm not real fond of Mallory's point plate, I switched the one in my '66 Mustang over to Petronix.

    A fuel filter will cause that engine backfire noise. Also a loose brass fiting in the card. John

    Angry engine missing as before I fixed it last year

     



    I guess I screwed up by not doing both heads. I got a question for any of you guys out there that would be so kind to help. If I fixed the head/cylinder with the tuliped valve, could this happen to the same head, different cylinder. I guess next weekend I will try and figure out what cylinders are not firing.
    thanks
