EDIT: as for the illustration it looks intended as an abstract and not to the actual degree as 8° ATDC isn't anywhere close to what is pictured in either of the two drawings

Agreed, I set clearances to .006" on the intake side, and .008" on the exhaust side.

As far as cam timing, that is in my client's hands - I did send him both cam cards - so he should be able to set them up.


From 3 down to 4 down.......

And off to the machine shop where that horrible valve job went away....

Once back in my hands, a quick re-assembly... and checking clearances....

A big swing is needed... 10 of 16 valves I can't get a clearance on.... so back to the shop to get them tipped - If you look to the far left you can see how much I had the intake valves tipped....


Now with clearances set - a set of faux cams is fitted to keep the shims/buckets in place during return shipping.
