MMDEL, this is gonna sound stupid, but, I can't remember. Immediately after I tore it down my wife died and I sorta lost interest in it for a couple of years. It's been about 2 - 1/2 years now since I tore it down so I really don't remember, which is not unusual for me. I had to change out the timing gear so I guess there's a chance I did remove it. What might be the downside of that?

did you go back with the right amount of teeth on the cam gear to match the crank gear

I thought of that and I believe the answer is yes. I was helped by Ken Foland and he advised me of the gear to use and actually sent it to me. I'm pretty confident I have the right one. But, wouldn't that affect all cylinders?

i dont think it would effect all cylinders. we bought a engine for a ub special and the bottom end was together when we got it. we put the heads and all on top and set the timing and it would fire every now and again. we found out that the g crank had the wrong gears on it for the new style front cover. we could never get it to do anything. we got it on compression stroke and found out that the exhaust valve was opening instead of the intake. it would only fire on every other time on one or two cylinders and was on the exhaust side at compression stroke. after we changed the gears and got the intake to open on compression stroke it ran like a champ. does yours have the new style front cover or the old style. i take it you got a 6 inch crank in it.
i think with the old style cover it should have a 70 35 tooth gear and a new style should be a 72 36 tooth gear.

Gonna take the front cover off today and see what's going on in there. I think we're narrowing it down now and I really think I'll find the problem inside that front cover. THanks for the help.

it may be 180 degrees out of time and on the compression stroke the exhaust valve is opening and letting the compression out the exhaust.
