Very cool, Jerry. That's going to be a lot of fun in front of an M22.
Nice job:thumbsup:I fired up the 496 yesterday. Very stressful, I am glad it is done lol
It fired up right away. :hurray: I had a small leak at the t'stat housing and a plug in the water pump. Small fuel leak at the carb, snugged them down again and all was good. No oil leaks anywhere except the oil pressure line on the test stand. I ran it for about 20-30 minutes and then dumped the oil and filter. I cut open the filter and there was some shiny stuff there but nothing unusual I think. I have the bypass plugged so hopefully it screened all the crap out.
Dam, does this thing sound mean. I think I am going to need bigger or better tires
I am going to adjust valves this morning and try tuning the carb. I took a video with my digital camera but don't have a clue how to post it. I will look into that
I just put a little silicone around the water ports & a little to keep the gasket from falling downThanks Mike
Mike, I used the felpro 1212 intake gaskets as per AFR. What do you use on the head side of the gaskets for sealer?
Also, today I checked the plugs and found 1 quite loose :clonk:
I am going to try the 'right stuff" this time.
OK, that is what I done also.I just put a little silicone around the water ports & a little to keep the gasket from falling down
Gaskacinch which is like a contact cement on the head side
Bill, I have the e-curve distributor, no springs, just adjust a dial. I tried 18-22 degrees and 10 more with vacuum advance. To be honest it idled better with just 18 initial and vacuum advance disconnected.Good stuff Jerry sounds like you need more timing in dizzy ....irratic timing at idle try stiffer springs in the dizzy .esp til you get carb tuned ...... get at least 20* initial 22* is better .....starting to advance 100-200 higher than idle speed .sounds like it advancing at idle .been there
