    id say proably the battery cables proably either corroided or not making full contact at battery or block/starter also check starter ground (make sure block is not dirty between starter and block and check to make sure the starter bolts are tight) hope this helps

    I guess I forgot to post this on that post, but the starter,and cables are new. And the battery is good. Just swapped the starter 2 days ago. Replaced a couple ground wires too. Thx tho..../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i think someone said to check the timing chain already.but that is what it sounds like to me.ive never done one but it looks like a pretty simple fix.i always wanted to put a gear drive timing in mine.if i ever have problems that is what im putting in.never have to worry about changing it again.hope u figure it out.

    Thanks for the reply Zak. But I did figure out the problem today. And it wasn't ignition or timing related. I pulled the valve covers off to watch the rockers....The #6 intake was barely moving. Seems that I have a flat cam lobe. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I need to get a Geo.

    Yeah, I'm gonna be ordering up a Comp Cams Extreme 4x4 Cam soon as I sell my 205 to pay for it. $99.95 from Summit. Anyone need a 10 spline 465 version 205? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
