great stuff here thank you for input it is much appriciated.
i think im going to start with the hei. i have the original one just wire it back up the way it was and start there. my buddy mentioned something about it being dialed really far advance to make it run cause its an HEI but not hooked up to a ecm. is this right. now im thinking that if it truly has some kind of radical cam in it do you have to advance the timing to make the motor run. when told the specs to time it i was told 8 deg., but im hearing you mention 36 deg., and my buddy say something about 40deg. when it was running. i thought he was just talking crap. i wondering if theres a hidden message here.
any thoughts? sometimes i think to hard and skip the obvious.
