Too bloody right Bob! I don't remember if you were around when I did the 23C diesel in '11, but that was a confusing rebuild- with dismal results.I had John on speed dial!
It would be fine in the wop wops, but much too smokey for civilization. I timed it by the -confusing- book, which is like steering a ship?... one gear 90 degrees a starboard, other 0 degrees north, set valves one and two to half speed, steady as she goes, dead ahead aye skipper...holy cow. BUT it was spot on first try. Something else is buggered up. Bill brox sent me a CD on the rebuilding process, arrived after I was done, but I did just what they did. yeah by accident...yeah..
I'd love to have this one figured out and set BEFORE needing to bolt the head on. If I can see the cam lobes? while top dead? that would be like not having a guessing game. My bet the reason it was scraped is the dizzy shaft broke, most likely from backfiring? If so, timing's off? Rather know it is wrong NOW, than take it all apart for naught?
Many years ago, my cousin sheared the entire insides of a Jag V12 from getting the timing off. Bloody poms not hiring a bloody apprentice to punch bloody marks on the bloody gears...I need a 4 X .........
