It is amazing what new wires, cap and rotor button can do! Fixed the problem lol It spins just fine now, runs way smoother, everything you would want in a motor.
When I bought my carb spacer, it came with a open bore insert and a 4 bore insert. I suppose that is how you refer to it? Well I am running the open bore atm, would the other make a difference?

Your machinist may be a pure genius, but the motors together now, so he isn't relivant anymore.
Start at the basics, remove Carb, set transfer slots, set float levels, confirm fuel pressure, verify tdc, lock the timing, and see what you have, the converter sucks for your cam but it should still idle okish and tear the tires off at will. As for your switch, its dead simple, like a monkey could do it, so don't fear that. Make sure you have or make a starter brace. These changes alone will likely help mileage, drivability and power. What are you waiting for?

36 is still a tenth of 360 no matter how big the balancer is.

|WICruiser||Degrees are not diameter dependent. Measure the circumference (length around the damper) and divide by 10 . Measure from TDC that amount and mark it 36 degrees.|

How much lower of a gear are we talking? Its already 4.11 lol At 55 I'm turning 3000..
Also, the floats were a little out of adjustment. Fixed that which smoothed it out some. Picked up power there actuallyGot feeling around more, and time to start calling me a stupid kid lol #7 plug wire wasn't popped all the way on.. The metal clamp on the inside of the 90 has pretty much burnt up.. It was still getting fire, but not much I bet.. Got new wires, cap and a button. Putting that on tomorrow. Still no timing tape though. No one carries the stuff..
My mind is so confused on some things.. May be doing a 3 speed, straight shift swap here soon.. So that will fix the converter issue. And as for the cam.. we'll see if the tires spin tomorrow after everything. Hoping so lol I'll keep you guys posted.
And I dont really want to lock up the distributor, because the switch will have to be put in so it'll start and what not.. And, I don't do good with wiring. The reason I have no choke, radio, manual pump, etc. I like simple.

|tresi||Here's another vote for a smaller cam. Even if you changed the convertor and gear you're still low on compression for the cam you have. You don't have this best manifold but it's minor compared to your cam problem. A swap to Comp 268HE cam or you favorite brand of bargin brand clone cam ( elgin, speed pro, melling, woverine, ect) and you'll think you have a different motor.|
