    well, after six months of learning a lot about engines, she came alive today, but this time with spunk!!!

    i was having a vaccum problem. i was only running 8-10 psi.

    i re adjusted the rocker arms using a different method, and she sounds like she should now and im getting 18 psi vaccum. i was so worried the cam was too much, but i guess not.

    does the valves being off a little have that much impact on vaccum? if it does, i lived and learned.

    i do have to get new vasccum lines tomorrow because i bought pretty chevy orange ones from pep boys, and the damn things collapse to a thin tube. lol

    i want to say thanks to all those that have helped.

    especially paul(ryoken) and joe (crazy427) sorry to be a big pita!!!
