Re: Timing an f162

Finally got it figured out. You have to time it at a very low rpm for a timing light to work. That way the distributor itself hasn't yet advanced the timing. Thats why its recomended 400-500 rpm. At...

Re: Welding 3in XXH & fittings

I would check the welding procedure to make sure you can weld a 30 deg. bevel to a 37 degree bevel. Usually procedure's specify +or- 5 degrees of a stated degree joint design. I'm going to guess that...
