valve chattering

Are you running racing gas? or at least fuel additive. If not it might be firing too soon. You are running alot of compression you need to run a hi octane gas. also if your doing all of this already try moving the timing. hope this will help Grim

What kind of fuel are you using? With a 12 to 1 compression ratio you will have pre-detonation if you do not mix or use the right fuel.
