Re: 413 ignition upgrades?

Billy- last night I went back and re-read a bunch of the this thread and most of the replies and you called it a while ago. Not only did you talk about jumped timing chain, but you mentioned checking the valves and tappets to ensure they were all working as they should. Had I listened I would have pulled that valve cover off a long time ago!

I tip my hat to you Billy.

and thanks to all of you that chimed in and put up suggestions. I leaned a lot. Now lets see how this HEI does. Ill keep you all posted.

Well I finally have the 440-3 about ready to go. I have converted over to the GM HEI Distributor and a 12SI, 94amp GM alternator. I made a new wiring harness for the engine also. Now to get the 72 into the shop and start putting her back together.

I am going to pull the axles off the 76 and skid the shell out of the shop hopefully this weekend. then I can get the 72 in there.
