    Pamco 277 Timing?

    In my old setup with a rephased 277 my cam were opposite to what's "normal" so it weren't my left that were 15 degree but the right cylinder. Could be a possibility as well!?

    Pamco 277 Timing?

    Not beeing a smart ass here, but your sure your mechanics know what a 277 rephase is? if he tries to adjust the cylinders as if it were a 360 then he wont get them correct at any time.

    Hi, have you checked that the ignition is spot on? Perhaps you could try and see if both pipes reach same temp, use a IRT for this..

    incorrect torque spec for caliper hex bolts in Haynes?

    Hi marp68, there are also Time-Serts as an alternative to helicoils. The Time-Serts is a new thread not just a thread repair. I would say that the Time-Serts would solve the problem for you.

    Well, kind of think it would be last resort, as the carbs are all new only has 300km on them so far. Could be a solution of course.. And one I would look into, so thanks for the suggestion.
