how bad is this?
i've been driving my jeep all summer with the top off. sadly i just put it back on this weekend, but when i did, i could finally hear the engine again. i realized that the timing has been set too far forward and that at about 65mph, it was pre-detonating and 'pinging' really bad. so i set the timing back and it has stopped pinging so badly, but it still pings some. also it is blowing oil out the breather worse than ever ( i even ran a hose across the firewall to relocate the breather) so you think the 2 are related. would it have bent the valves or anything? how bad is this?
The cup isn't half full or half empty, it's just twice the size it needs to be!!!
