[QUOTE=lanierledford]I think I missed the boat. He said it ran good before he pulled the carb. and dist. How'd that wear out a lobe on the cam, or change the jet in the carb?
I'd guess in the timing or wiring. I'd check the wiring again, with help if needed, then try moving the timing around and see what happens. lol[/QUOT

Yes I guess you did miss your boat!!!I didn't say it was his problem.I said a cam could do it.And it CAN.Sometimes it does take a while to round a lobe.
