Re: Firing Order / Timing Problem?

Looks like that motor has 2 and a half strikes against it! You shouldn't have flipped the distributor IF it tried to run at all before. At the least, pull the plugs and wheel it over with them out to clear out the cylinders. Then put in new ones and try a shot of ether (starting fluid), Good luck! J...

Re: Firing Order / Timing Problem?

The plug wires go (from the # 1 position) in a CCW direction: 12756348 Jeff PS: It's really easy to loose track of where a wire is going as it dives between the manifold and head. So...if it's running but poorly, using heavy gloves and insulted pliers, remove one wire at a time from the distributor ...

Re: Plumbing for DC39 holding tank

Did that years ago on my 32 footer and it was the BEST thing I did to it! That tiny tank in the stock head is a joke! You want to jamb in there the BIGGEST tank that will fit! You need to plumb the pump out line to the bottom of the tank. The vent line goes to the top. Make sure the bled hose (off t...

Re: Understanding the CAPAC

The probe I bought was not THAT expensive, as I recall. It can work with an ordinary volt meter.

Re: Priming engine oil

Arrgh! Turning it backwards only complicates it. Please look that motor up and see which way is correct. I'd also short circuit those long oil lines, just for this start up. (The delayed oil pressure at every start up can cause bearing damage, but if you need them...) Adding Lucas oil supplement red...

Re: Priming engine oil

Are you SURE you're rotating it the right way? If so, you'll have to pack the pump. That's the problem with that design, where the oil pump is not submerged in oil. Jeff PS: The new GM LS series engines have the same problem. Their oil pump is located on the crankshaft, in front, with a long tube do...

Re: 318/392 Stroker Motors

Use a straight edge and a thin feeler gage across the block surfaces. If you see any gap you'll have to resurface it.

Good luck! (One of my favorite big M projects.)
