    After getting new plugs, wires and a different carb rebuilt for it.
    My buddy whom is a mechanic did a rebuild, set the timing (which was off by 8 degrees!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif), and tuned the whole thing.

    All I can say now is that the damn thing runs way smoother and does not smoke or pop anymore. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Now I'm thinking the Comp Cam in it is too small as it seems like it don't have enough power. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif Not like it had that much power to begin with, but it could use more. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Anyways, just glad to have the truck back finally. I was tired of pedaling a bike five blocks to work. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
