yes all it has is 0 through 40* I think(my eyes are old see post 325 I said I didn't have a OBD and there it is) . No after top dead center markings, I made a blue arrow to indicate which set of timing marks to use when I was matching new balancer to the old balancer

Started down I just felt it

Yes. I'm thinking I see nothing but degrees after TDC.

There are things called timing tape, but Henry Help Us, if you can find one for a sbf.

OK, my bad. Looked at a balancer on the shelf & yours shows before degrees & no after degrees.

The pointer lines up with the first zero mark when you find for sure TDC?

Then you should be able to pull the spout, loosen the hold-down & get 10* (second 0, second red mark to the right)

Unless the cap is hitting something. The only other issue you might be having is that 8 inches of vacuum could be some heavy leak.

diggerrigger is starting off with a positive reputation.
You can disconnect the vacuum line at the EGR valve and plug it. It will have no effect for your purposes at this time.

8 inches of vacuum is way low. Vacuum that low would most commonly indicate a manifold leak. Is the PCV valved line made to the tapped opening on the the rear of the upper intake? I know this connection opening is out of sight, maybe out of mind.

I drove it up to town twice today first time I tried it at 12-15 I had to stop and advance it up to 20+ just to get up the hills.

It it heats up to the fan comes when not moving but driving it cools down to 190 or so, when I turned it off I checked the thermostat housing with my gauge and it read 197 just after shutdown.

197* is good. 20* I guess will have to be lived with for now.

Are your IAC, throttle body, gaskets new?

Are all the extra ports on the vaccume tree capped?

This thing doesn't have a power brake booster does it?

What intake to head gasket did you use?

everything working ok? This is a hot rod made up from I’m counting 6or7 cars/trucks. Power steering for instance jaguar rack & pinion but the pump is ford E250 the pump is new when I built the engine but the rack seals are old and when I started up the engine I had a lot more pressure than the old pump( the old one worked great)so of course I blow the seals
