So I found out my timing is locked out. What are the pro's and cons of having locked out timing? Also I read in another thread a guy has his locked out at 37* or 38* (SBC) mine is locked out at 27* for right now (SBC) maybe that's why its running like crap. It will run all day on the trailer idle, rev etc. but as soon as you dump it in the water and put a load on it it wont idle worth a crap. Could timing effect this? Why does it run fine on the trailer but when put a load on it, wont? What kind of load does a Jet pump put on a motor (the impeller is a "B" if that matters)
my thinking is its a slight load to the crank so the pistons/crank might move a hair slower but timing remains unchanged hence the no idleing. Hell I dont know im just brain storming.
