Ill reset valve lash using the updown method for the pushrod. Sounds like a few of mine were to tight causing my restart issue. Ill reset the timing and also double check plug wire setup and give it another go in the morning
If the cams duration is 263@.050" it is pretty much a full race hyd cam
The engine will want full locked out timing full time 36deg BTDC.

it will need 36deg timing at idle thus the locked out distributor curve.

IF that is the actual cam timing.
