I Think I burned up my motor
Hi, by now you guys know me as the guy that always needs help. So not to dissapoint...
I just put my head back on, with a regrind high-range cam and new stem seals. I got the valves adjusted, the marks on the engine timing all line up as far as I can see. And my weber just came back from the weber guys because I had been having problems with it. It was running lean under constant highway speeds, fine at idle and accel.
Well, I believe I got the distributer back in OK, lines up with the marks I made, and it points to cyl one when its supposed to.
So the car started right up, seemed to run fine, then died 30 secs later, and the headers were smoking slightly burning paint).
I checked everything again, removed my fuel press regulator and hooked the weber direct to the pump and started her up.
Started up fine, ran fine except the headers heat up really fast, and start smoking after 15-30 seconds, then I shut her off. Did that three times. The paint on them is turning white now.
Any ideas on what I got wrong, or what I need to do?
