Re: 360 Progress??? help w/timing and starter
it is set at 10 right now and the vlaves are tapping under load, so i think i'll drop it to 7 and try until the engine loosens up a bit then i'll play with it. it's pretty tight right now with the rebuild.
i'll snap some pics of the q-jet for you this week and either email em to you, post em on my site or both.
i used the manifold i got from you (irjpr) and put a squarebore to spreadbore adapter on upside down (had to grind off one small piece on the side so the linkage would not get caught). then i just dropped it on backwards, fabbed a throttle cable bracket, fabbed a choke linkage and ran it. i got more than a few comments from my drag racing buddies who looked a few times at the carb and noted that "somthing aint right here". runs like a champ up the road, except like i said about the valve tapping, hopefully retarding it a bit will help that.
