1977 F100 - 460 from a 1969 Lincoln, C6 Trans, 9" Rear
Tim, that’s what I was thinking as well. I turned it down to 15 initially and it ran okay, not great. A week later it would not start at all, it would just backfire through the carb. I’m thinking you and Dacofa are right - the balancer has slipped. It makes a lot of sense.HI
spark knock is timing.. re-set timing to a little lower 10 or 12 degs. with vacuum off and plugged, NOT 15* ... If it does not run at 10 or 12* you have problems with timing or distributor. or the damnpner is OFF..(slipped)
good luck take care be safe
Dacofa - I like the sleeve you have there, nice and clean. I’ll start looking for that. I’ve considered the electric fuel pump setup but for now will stick with Mechanical, unless I can’t get the heat under control.
