Timing marker off 90 Deg?
I have a small block that has maybe 1000 miles on it since the rebuild. Everything is new, I had been chasing an oil leak for quite a while. I though it was the pan but ended up being the TChain Cover. Since I have replaced that it hasn't really run right. Around the same time I was working on my hood latch that required the removal of the dizzy as well.
What's going on now:
Car runs decent, has good vaccum, around 18 @ idle and it's never iradic. After about 20 min or so on the road, the temp starts to climb and when I park it, the hood is HOT.
What I've tried:
I figure the timing is off so today I re-established my TDC with a dial indicator through the Spark plug hole, and get it set, nothing seems off at this point. So I unhook the vac advance, set my timing light to 0 and start her up. It's pointing almost DEAD on the 90 Deg mark at idle. It didn't do this when I first built the motor but the car has never really been dialed in very well either for lots of various reasons.
SO, is my dizzy off one tooth or what? The car idles fine, but I'm afraid to finish the tune with the timing off this far.
What do you guy's think?
