Bullshit. Doesn't start, still. Smells like fuel really bad under the hood. Going to put the ****ing cam gears back at stock positions, and see if I can get it to start. This **** is retarded.
Chug chug chug, but not free spirited chug as it used to. Another thing, is the raw fuel in the combustion chambers. Plugs are soaked when I pull them out.Does the engine chug chug chug normally while cranking? Or does it sound like you didn't reinstall one or more sparkplugs? I can't imagine that 2.5* of adjustment would prevent starting.
Doesn't sound good...
Not free spirited: Probably draining your battery. As long as you have four even pulses with some rrRAR-rrRAR-rrRAR-rrRAR sound, you probably didn't bend any valves. Wet plugs - did you install the coil wire? Distributor plug?Chug chug chug, but not free spirited chug as it used to. Another thing, is the raw fuel in the combustion chambers.

I hope it's nothing serious, or I'll be HIGHLY pissed.
Yes, the dizzy does move to match the same timing, but it's minor. You'll end up with the dizzy leaned back a 1.75* towards the firewall if you did a 2.5* exhaust retard. Still, shouldn't prevent you from starting the thing.give the engine a once over. Make sure you didnt pull loose a fuel line or the such while working on it. Like removing the VC and you pull the vac hoses off...you could have snaged something and not noticed it. Just take a good look at it. Pull on everything, tug on wires, tug on hoses, tug on yourself....look for stuff that might be out of place. start from one side and go to the other. did you pull anything off the distributor by accident?
what noises does it make? if you can try a different set of plug wires. We had a set go bad at Ben Davis's once. Literally pulled them off the car, sat aside, came back to them 3 days later to put them on, and they were dead. A spare set of stockers fired the car right up.
Doesnt moving the exhaust 2.5* also move the distributer? Doesnt that affect timing? Could be out of time now.... Just brain storming. Ive actualy never put on a set of adjustable cam gears, just stockers
To answer your question earlier... The dowel pins at 10 and 12 respectively... It will take forever to get the color links... You can also guesstimate the first cylinder's cam lobes...
Erich, Isn't it 20 dowel pins BETWEEN the teeth? IE: The colored link, has two dowel pins. One outside the dot, and one on the inside of the dot, on the chain. Therefore, there are 20 total pins between the dots. These cam gears also have the marks on the center of the cam gears, to indicate the location of where the dowel pin would have been, for 10 and 12 o' clock positions.If I'm counting right... It looks like 22 dowel pins?
Thanks for the clean comment. As far as electonics goes, I'm not sure what it is. I'm starting to wonder if I should pull the dizzy out towards the radiator, if that would get it to start.I agree with them man. Doesnt sound like it's mechanical since your getting fuel and the motor is turning over. Sounds like your not getting spark for some reason. Have you checked to insure your getting spark? I'd do that first. You got all that fuel in your cylinders not getting burned up. So you cant be getting spark for some reason. Some freak accident proberly happened. You did cam gears and a fuse might of blew out or something. It happens, just to piss us off.
P.S- Nice clean motor you got there. She's looking healthy.
