Well I just figured out why my car felt like it was running on 6 cylinders. Probably because it was. I've played with timing and carb and replaced the powervalve thinking maybe that was it. Took the car for a ride tonight and it was poping out through the carb (there goes my new powervalve) so when I got back I pulled the valve cover and found #1 exhaust and #3 intake valves were barely opening. That will do it everytime. What would cause the lobes to wipe out like this on a solid flat tappet cam? The cam card called for .026 for both intake and exhaust. I set them to .030 cold and figured that would be ok. Hopefully the metal shavings didn't wipe out my crank. Grrrr I'm so angry right now I'm going to go drink and see if I can find some answers.
