Surging problem with my new 355!?!? HELP!
Ok my engine periodically jumps from like 600RPM to 850RPM at idle. I set the timing at 8 degrees BTDC and adjusted the idle screw to 850 RPM, but then this started happening. It wouldn't be my exhaust leak from my header would it? I'm going to get that fixed soon.
As for the surging problem I've been driving it up and down the backroads to kinda put some miles on the motor, and I can feel surging in 2nd and 3rd gear (SM465). Any idea what is causing this? It's about to drive me nuts! All I need to do is get the motor squared away and then the brakes and then its time to lift and put tires on![img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
Also about the timing when the truck is cold it takes it forever to crank turns and turns and turns and turns, but once it's warm it'll start on the first lick!(confused!) Do I need to adjust my timing back more? Maybe 6 degrees BTDC?
A buddy of mine seems to also think that the surging problem is valves to tight? Which I don't think it is because I adjusted the valves while the truck was running.
Sorry for the short novel but I have these several things I need the boards help with so if you can give me any advice I would gladly accept it!
