Re: New guy with a old truck and motor

Drove it into work today and noticed a marked difference. There's still a tap, but not near as bad (perhaps because of the exhaust leaks?) but no pops or hiccups. And I have more power.

I'll probably do another compression test tonight with the better timing to see if the numbers improved.

The timing set is still on the menu.

Speaking of 460s, my neighbor also has a block + internals he's looking to get rid of. I may take it off his hands for a future swap.
