I've posted more of an INTRO thread here
... I am SUPER grateful for all of the attention, support, warnings and encouragement >>>> forward then! Thank you and deep bow.
So, I've checked the timing - I got a couple different results and I'm hoping folks will help me out and get me on the right track... Between T and 1. If you look at the photos the Cam gears are not spot spot on,,,, which leaves me to guess that I am in the right neighborhood. (If you all tell me thats what I need to do) I will spin the engine again in the next days and get the markings on CAM gears to line up EXACT (take better pictures) and re-visit you good people. The photos are TOUGH because its hard to know if the angle is adequate for right viewing. Anyways - this is what i got
Note: I think I missed taking a picture or TWO that I was needing to take! I will go back (without getting dirty today) and take them! This is what I have for now. What say you?
I have also removed the Carbs. Things did not LOOK as bad as I thought but 2 of the small (slow) jets were completely clogged and ONE was literally hanging by 2-3 threads. It was soooo loose I could turn it out by hand. All that to say she was still running really rough after draining out and changing gas.
I haven't figured out the cooling problem and no fan when hot. Any straight forward tests and troubleshooting is welcomed.
I have my CLYMER manual - have the HAYNES coming. Looks good but doesn't give much on the cooling electrics - unless I missed something. I've noticed a book on Ebay that seems to deal specifically with electrics - around $50bucks - worth getting? IMPORTANT QUESTION --- WILL THERE BE A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 87 AND 86 BOOK. I JUST NOTICED THIS ONE ON EBAY FOR $25!!!
I WON'T GET IT IF FOLKS SAY THAT THE DIFFERENCES ARE HUGE - hopefully someone here won't see it and snag it out from under me, lol
Again, many thanks - see ya on the flip side!
