[DML] Re: Troubles-updated/flames from exhaust

Check out the valves today-my #6 intake tappet loosened so had too 
much clearance, once I adjusted that the loud knock went away. While 
I don't have 3 ft [thank god] it was a good 6 inches on a good fire. 
My fuel distributor is just purchased from SpecialTAuto. The last 
one started making loud shrieking and suddenly raw gas was POURING 
out the tail pipe. Once I got the new one on it took half an hour 
just to burn all the fuel soaked in the muffler out-looked like my 
old 66 thunderbird with a half blown 390-smoke everywhere. 
Nonetheless, I know the FD is good to go. To help in my future 
problems I got an order in with JC Whitney for a Bosch CIS K-Jet 
fuel test kit, only 56 bucks! I'm very hesitant with touching the CO 
now-now that my FV is running tip-top; and the exhaust smells fine 
with no color. I was under the car today after pressurizing the 
system, I looked all over the accumulator and lines there is nothing 
leaking, looked at the fuel filter and that isn't leaking. As I 
mentioned the pump check valve is new and the boot and lines aren't 
leaking so I'm a bit baffled now. There is definitely a smell of 
fuel around it though, tomorrow I'll jump the pump while looking. I 
did the tune up weeks ago, and pulled #1 & #6 plugs today to 
determine TDC and stroke; +4s look like number 3 on John Hervey's 
spark plug Analysis chart-carbon deposits. After those 2, I checked 
them all and they're all like this. I'll check timing again tomorrow 
just for kicks. As is now, car sounds good with good power so I'm 
happy. Just a few more things to do before [I hope] it's back to 
running like it should. Thanks for the posts guys! -----Dani B. #5003
