Man of endless projects
alriught well my 80s 351w was running great before i did some work on it, jsut had low oil pressure. the carb wasnt perfectly set but it did start easy as pie idled very go. now that i did the timnig chain, oil pump and bearings and its all together, ive had trouble getting it to start. it originally would jsut sputter a few times but not start. after adjsuting the timing enugh, i did manage to get it running and i had it run for a good 20 mins with it sounding smooth and good no misses. timed it to 10* BTC however when i would put the vacuum advance on, it would start sputtering so i left it off for now. had to shut it off for abit but it started right back up and still idled good. tried to put it into gear and the motor stalled. put it bakc into park but when cranking it, the motor woulnt start again. jsut spttering. i eventually cranked it too much and the starter got soo hot it seized. the starter is under warrenty so ill get a new one tomarrow if i cant free it up. till then, is there anythnig i can check that would make the motor hard to start but run fine when going? jsut for info, the dizzy is an HEI.
