Tuned the Ranchero tonite

Took the 'Chero back to DynoMotive tonite for Toma to massage. All we did was set the timing at 35 degrees and for an experiment we removed the pan-evac system. The motor responded well. Made it's best power at about 185 degrees. The D/A tonite was the equivalent of 5500 feet above sea level.

Combo? What was the hp/trq. rpm, I can't tell what line is what.

Sounds like it is a strong 466.

I installed the cam with the dots on the gears lined up. Should I play with the cam position?
