@vinniekq2, we did check valves everything is inline there. I checked timing everything is still spot on from rebuild to break in. We even moved timing around to see what we get for vacum less than 5hg. Something is really wrong there. Was at 15 inch of vacum before the carb. Backfired. I was told that I didn't have enough compression to support the cam also. It would idel comfortable at 1000 rpm brought it down to 9. Put it in gear it would barely stay on. Moved to 1100 then in gear it would idel at 900. In traffic a complete nightmare I would have tree the stop.light to keep it from dying off and the only way to solve would be to have the idel set way above normal I consume more gas than alittle bit.
