We hijacked Medic8rs' thread, methinks.

Nah, mileage is worse of course, but it runs the same and doesn't run-on, so he'll leave it disconnected until he brings it here to retime it.

It's got a tinkerer's ignition in it... GM HEI with a 40Kv Accel coil... then to make up for the higher ignition voltage, plug gap was increased, which puts more stress on the wires.

Luckily everything's easy to work on... even the rear main seal wasn't a huge project.

Has he changed the distributor cap? Could be a hairline crack in the cap that's causing the problems.

Well, turnabout is fair play, so I'm a good sport.

I plan on posting more inane crap, regardless.

Carry on, all!

Just an FYI, dieseling is due to the RPM being to high and the engine keeps sucking in fuel at idle keeping the motor running. Make sure after checking the timing to set the idle speed to spec. With the plug wire back on the engine now obviously runs better and has more RPM at idle. It really isn't a matter of the timing being off as long as the idle speed is correct. You can run the timing 10deg advanced if you want as long as the idle speed is where it is supposed and no other carb issues it won't run on.

Really no need to increase the plug gap, as well unless he has further modified the engine. It's the increase in plug gap that causes the increase in the KV output. The extra plug gap, just changes the flame front and in turn chnges the burn rate in the cylinder, causing some other issues.

Those are pretty good.

In a similar fashion, the guys at despair.com have always given me a chuckle. Really slick designs, and the style of the web site and catalogs (one of which came in the mail last week - yay!) are just spot-on perfect.

There's several dozen designs, so beware - this site is addictive and another major time-suck.

How I wish I could post some of those in my office, but they're just too snarky. So many of them apply to psychiatric practice.

I was thinking of the same site. When we were decorating our new offices at work I wanted very badly to get some prints from despair.com. Sadly, I was out-voted. \:\(
