Re: timing



Bob,

I remember changing head gaskets in my youth and when we cranked the engine we had the same thing happen. I think we had the valves one or more set to tight, valve lash, , 57 F____ Stock Six. We had to check them to see that the push rods were not bent. We then set the valves as loose as possible and then adjust them properly.

Just a thought from 50 yrs. or more ago.

Hi Bob

It could be a much simpler fix. Maybe the distributor is 180 deg out? Backfiring through the carb would be a classic indication of that.

Good luck

 Does it sound like I did not line up the marks on the timing chain right ( 180 ) out ?
 Is there any way to tell besides taking the timing cover back off?
  What would be a good gasket to use?
          Thanks
