I've had the mag all over the place, advanced retarded you name it.

I was kind of surprised at how little effect had on the engine running over all.


I had a strange experience like this, kind of reminded me of yours. Here it is:

I replaced the head gasket. It needed a new one badly. I went ahead and adjusted the valves on her, because it wont run right until you do. Turns out I forgot to bolt down the rocker arm assembly and just slapped the valve cover over it. She had good compression...for about as much time as it took to run a test. After that she started missing. Couldnt figure out what the hell happened. Someone mentioned to me to just take the valve cover off and look...well, the picture easily describes what I saw. She was only running on #2 and #3. I properly bolted down the rocker arm assy and she runs like a champ now.

Bottom line, if all else fails, just pull the valve cover off and run it, see what the valves are doing.
