It started!!! Dizzy was 180 out... ugh. Running like crap but will idle and rev. Oil pressure is good.
Gonna set the idle timing and then do some searches on setting the mixture. Wow... can't believe how cool she sounds again!!! Oil smoke was prevalent but I am assuming that is till the new rings have a chance to seat.
Wow, that felt good. Now just to smooth out the running.
Thanks to everyone for the recommendations on checks. The timing light idea gave me the confidence to rotate the dizzy as I was seeing #1 firing at the right spot. THANKS JIM!!!
