      I welded a nut in a bar which screws into one of the bolts on the spare tire carrier face, this allows me to drop the tailgate to dead level with the bed - and can thread in or out to make up for uneven surfaces. its alot handier...

      Don’t dwell on the dizzy too much, use the marks on your flywheel for reference.

      Be certain that it is compression stroke, not exhaust stroke. Otherwise continue on, get it running, then come back with the base-lining work, fresh distributor et cetera. :cheers:

      So: distributor is 180 degrees off. I rotated the engine and watched #1 pushrods and then aligned mark when both valves were closed and the piston was at the top (no plugs installed). As long as the wires are right, is this an immediate issue...

      No coolant in oil, just out the exhaust. I had the head totally rebuilt and checked out at the machine shop, all new but the casting.

      Yes it will run if off a tooth- compensated for by advancing the timing (loosen the distributor holddown and rotate 'til pointer on BB). It seems like there is a lot of room in the valve cover for the top of that rocker adjustment, so I dunno if...

      I reread your first post and see the other valves all adjusted fine... so disregard my earlier post. Do those 2 push rods look any different than the rest? Do those rockers go through full travel like the rest as the engine is spun? I'm...

      Get the pointer aligned to the line on the flywheel (TDC) before adjusting valves sequence. Seems like the photo shows that? I recently checked the valves on my '87 (2F- so same same method) and when pointer aligned to the line on flywheel, the...

      Are you on the wrong stroke for the valves you are trying to adjust? (i.e. 360* of crankshaft / 180* of camshaft). I'm assuming you tried to adjust 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 9? It looks in the photo like 12, 11, and 10 are in a 'relaxed' position... can...

      acy76 reacted to Steamer's post in the thread Real-time help: adjusting valves with Like Like.
      I would re-confirm that you are on the TDC mark. Hard to tell in your pic. As you rotate the engine, you should see the raised “bb” come up just before the “line.” They are just far enough apart that you can’t quite see them both in the window at...

      The distributor may be a tooth off on the drive gear, hence the rotor pointing more towards #4-5. Is the inside of the valve cover scratched up around where the adjusting threads are?

      Whoops, yes I meant 5.

      Also, everything is suspect, PO work was garbage when they did anything other than neglect it.

      I’ll look again. What’s the best vantage point? Alignment depends where you look at it from.
    • acy76
      acy76 replied to the thread Real-time help: adjusting valves.
      There is what looks like a potentially related scratch where #7 could have hit. Hard to say. Will the thing run if it’s off a tooth? It ran well, pinged on hard accel but the secondary was stuck shut in the carb. It also always overheated but...

      Yeah, I assume you meant 1,2,3,5,7,9–that’s what I’m attempting.

      acy76 replied to the thread Real-time help: adjusting valves.
      Yeah the rotor position you describe sounds like my situation. And that is the timing mark in the photo, just past the BB. I will recheck to be certain but I aligned it tons of times. Will also check lifters, seems odd that two would behave the...

      I'm trying to do as much OEM replacement of things as I can afford, and where it makes sense. If I can buy a Denso part or an Aisin part that is the same as OEM at a significant savings I will. When I bought this truck, it barely ran. It had 0...

      Post #2 - A few random tips and pointers that I learned as I did this...maybe common knowledge to some, but I didn't know :) 1) My engine didn't have hooks for the hoist, so I threaded a head bolt through a chain link. The bolt was a bit too...
