    Sorry I haven't been back in a while -- other stuff going on. I found that it was actually mechanically off. Looks like the cam gear locating pin is mis clocked. I moved the chain 3 teeth. It runs great and has good manifold vac. Thanks for your help.

    Good to see you back birdland! And thanks for taking time to close the loop on what was wrong with your engine, and your fix.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
