    Ya know, I was thinking exactly the same thing. An intake valve? Really? I got nothing. Thought MAYBE he could have gotten the cam advanced enough to smack the intakes but there is nothing in the pic to say that.
    Possibly, just possibly, fleetimus just has some truely shitty luck. Maybe he should buy a lotto ticket, because his luck has to get better than this.
    I would like to entertain getrdone's idea, but frankly, its nonsensical. Nothing new there.

    Holy shit Timmy!!!! I'm sorry. No doubt about it, between the sinking and endless motor issues, you've proven that that you named that boat perfectly and you've got the patience of a saint

    I think I woulda taken a chain saw to her and bought a sailboat by now.


    Sorry pard

    A little good news. I am picking up another engine this weekend. A little milder than this engine.

    A scenario for the failure. I took it to CFW after installing the crank, bearings and rings. Builder error, I didn't tightem the distributor!! (DUH) Took off and it back-fired big time thru the carbs. Not once, but several times. It was suggested to me that could have damaged the valve. Possibly more valves, yet to be seen. Is that a possible cause of this carnage??

    I actually have no complaints about my dilemmas. The engine has performed quite well. I accept that things can and will happen. I am re-learning things from my youth.

    Just bear with this old man and we can all have some fun. Stay tuned!!!
