Ditto on the timing. When I started my 81 SC after the rebuild in ran crappy. Out of an abundance of caution, I took half the engine apart and rechecked everything, cam timing, valve timing, chains and tentionsers . .. everything was fine, but the timing was way off.

Retimed it to TDC and it purrs. Amazing how timing being off just a little will make it sound like it is falling apart.
