:We have the engine in and running....somewhat. Can't get it to idle.
What we have is the stock 1600 single port with new P&Cs, petronix on the 009 and kads set up by AJ and the rest is what was there and running good before we took it out. We didn't adjust the timing since the car was running well before we pulled it. Of course I don't know if the kads change the timing. Yes No?
Another thing that happens is it wants to rev real fast sometimes without stepping on the gas. Surging/pulsing fuel pump?
So we have yet to get the mixture set on these guys....but Dorinda was real happy to get to fire it up today. First time in five years. crazy:

First thing check for a vaccum leak at the manifolds.
Air cooled before water cooled. They both need more to go fast. Let them breathe and breed the more the better. 55 oval, 58 ragtop,

Ryan gave the same advice on the SBO forum, someone didn't tighten the nuts on the head studs.
