    Reuse Head Gasket?

    Becoming Untimed!?!

    dont know much bout these ngines but isnt it physically impossible for the timing to fall out of place? Im lookin at the book now and see that you have to pull the distrbutor out to change things other that adjusting the dist. maybe its inside the new dist? somethin loose in there? or maybe...
