It was 2 off I think, there wasn't any hangups or pinging when I was just trying to get it running earlier when I was hand turning the engine over before I started messing with the timing.
Now I'm just trying to tune it up and overcome backfires out the exhaust.
Next step will be to adjust the timing on the points and make sure it's correct.
Then make sure the carbs are synced up.
And if this fails....I'm thinking maybe the valves are leaking a little too much on the exhaust stroke.
For a 1978 GL1000 that's been sitting for several years that I just got a week or so ago it's coming along.
