Response to Congratulations !
I have about 4 hours on the new engine. She runs fantastic, I can't wait to get it in the boat and get out on the water.
I have encountered an interesting situation. While the engine starts and runs fantastic I have an interesting situation. The engine will not run unless the timing is set to aprox. 25-30 degrees BTDC.
I have tried all the things I know including changing distributor timing, I have checked cam timing and that checks out. I have swapped distributors, timing lights etc., etc., etc.
I don't understand how cam timing can be spot on and yet the engine will not run inside normal engine timing parameters.
I have checked with all the pros I know and tomorrow I will try to contact the engine supplier to pose these questions.
I've exhausted all the ideas I know from past experience, I've never seen this particular situation. I'm hoping someone here has seen this problem and knows hot to address it.
