Thanks for all the replies fellas.
- Poncho it’s 0-100km so 0-60 miles sorry.
- 75gmck25 that was my estimate based the cam and parts. I think I need to recheck the damper to ensure it hasn’t spun at all. Also have to get an AF gauge to check things. Although I wouldn’t think carb tune would be around 200hp. Especially when it runs smoothly with no smoke.
- curtis73 it is possible. Looking JE pistons site even that low of compression or 1 point is 4-6% still doesn’t account for the massive power such. I am sure the secondaries are opening, I can hear them sucking, although I might have to stick a paper clip on the secondary pump to check by how much.
-Bogie you raise some points that are valid and I know they are not ideal but low RPM should be better. I never realized a tranny could be that big of a parasitic drag. There are definitely some things to try but want to try to cross off everything I can before dumping money or pulling heads off.
-johnsongrass1 the rear gear is 3.73.
-Mousecountry I am not sure what you mean by post your tune up specs. The initial timing is currently set at 14 and 34 total by 2800. I haven’t touched the carb yet as the plugs are telling me it in the ballpark and it starts, idles and drives perfectly. Just a slug.
Rustbucket- I know, the tires are only 6 inch wide and I couldn’t get them to spin at all. As stated previously, I think I need to check the damper hasn’t spun and that TDC is indeed TDC.
I don’t get to work on it except on weekends so will let you know my findings.
