    So good and bad news:

    I'll give you the bad news first:
    I noticed my rear axel has been more clicky and clunky (lock rite) so for ****s and giggles I checked the fluid level. I had to add 2.5 quarts into the rear end. No wonder why the pinion seal wasn't leaking, there was nothing to leak out of it!

    For the good news:
    I played around with the timing on my engine and found that my initial timing was at about 2 degrees :eek1: so I advanced the thing quite a bit and I must say there is a huge difference in how well the thing runs and it has a lot more power idle though 5000rpm. It is also a bit more responsive too. I never knew timing could make such a difference.
