    Ok so 1 tooth out and 4 degree bushing sets it at 14 deg, I guess I'm happy with that, I will reassemble and see if it turns over without hitting a valve.

    You can see that the timing marks are off.

    Well it's all back together, head is torqued down and nothing is touching, rolls over quite nice, I guess it will work, I will put the rest together tomorrow, my push rod checking tool is coming Tuesday so I can take a look at this:

    23 degrees retarded seems crazy. Surprised it even ran!

    Hoping this rebuild works and gets the beat back on (and off...) the road.

    I guess I should clarify, the 23 deg is from what it should have been, it was only retarded 10 degrees, it should have been advanced 13 deg, hence 23 degrees.

    Can't wait to fire it up and see if this makes any difference.

    Looking good Dana. More than I got done in my shop today. All we really got done is mount a new flywheel on a 4.0. Too much nonsense today

    A bad day in the shop is still better than a good day of work!


    With all I've been doing out there lately I should get a film crew and start pook's power block!

    Haha, same here. I can't even get a chance to fix my own stuff. I did spend about ten minutes yesterday replacing a seal on the Atlas

    That's enough for today, engine is ready to go back in, not sure if I'll wait and look at all the pushrods while it's on the stand or stuff it in tomorrow after work.

    Still have to machine a new pilot bushing and bolt the clutch up, but that won't take long!

    We ran into a pilot bushing problem too. Can't seem to find one anywhere for the 4.0. That is what caused all the delay yesterday. If I had one that was the right size, there would have been a 4.0 going back into Ryan's XJ
