      Still not sure why. Unless there a bunch more boat lovers hiding in the closet than I realized.

        Hmm, looks like I was only one degree off on the timing, not bad for just dropping the distributor in and rotor pointing in roughly the same place. Added some fuel around to the fuel map, particularly at high load, lower rpm. Car is driving pretty good now around the block with a nice steady AFR around 14.0 when loaded up. Tomorrow I'm heading south to Vegas again, should be good to go

            Thanks. Laid two healthy patches of rubber with it today as a test, strictly as a test ;D

              Many more tests are needed to scientific.

                I had to do that with my old truck a couple days ago, as a test. It passed.

                  Your tests are too short in duration-how are you expecting a good result with such a small amount of time?

                          Happy Thanksgiving!

                          I was thinking, dang, I've driven a lot of miles on the Skylark this month.

                          ~1700miles on SEMA/AZ, 500 miles last week, and it'll be about 1200 miles by the time I get home Monday. That'll be no less than 3400 miles this month :o

                          So far this cam has 1,000 miles on it, so far so go

                                So instead of going into the basement and clearing off a portion of the work bench and tearing into the OHC, I decided to see if I could get my blower motor working better in Skylark.

                                Now if you recall from the Heater Core excersise it is well buried in the fender. Yup, under the hinge and to the left of the evaporator box.


                                The screw that held the ground connector was coming loose and arc'ing causing the blower to quit intermittedly until it finally gave up entirely driving home from Thanksgiving weekend. Now for the interesting part (other than managing to fit my hands into that cramped area), it seems I had my power and ground wires backwards :o Who wants to make bets that the blower motor has been spinning backwards since I did the heater core? :-\

                                So after contemplating the possibilty of that being a cause of poor performance, I pulled out the DVOM and sure enough, that plug there in the picture is the ground :-\


                                Seems to be blowing pretty good now
