Its a no go on me for Saturday. My truck Ive been working on is giving me problems and I have to get it started so I can sell it and get me my OWN truck. Its in the 80-84 thread under distributor issues. If you wanna read and maybe know what I should do.
I read your thread in the 80 - 86 forum.
That engine ain't right, man. Something is in there floating around, probably trapped between bearings in the cam galley. I bet you pull that cam, and fish in there with a magnet - you're gonna find all kinds of stuff in there.
Wish I could get under the hood, I'd check it for him, had a friend who had similar problems when both self destructed together. He had a roller engine in a 65 Gallaxy, installed a non roller distributor, was the caus of all his head ache.
