Is the six actually all the way down? Does the base meet the case or is the clamp twisted keeping it from going all the way down?

I had taken the clamp off the dizzy and put the clamp on the block and just put the nut and washer on but no where to be tight. I then put the dizzy in and made sure it was lined up correctly and then put all my weight on it. While I had all my weight I checked to make sure it was all the way in and it was. I then tightened everything up and she was running fine with no issues. Then about 15 min down the road (side roads of San Clemente), it popped up again. I did it again to get me going. Then in front of San Onofre, it did it again so I pulled the spring out.

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Drove to work today with the same setup as yesterday (no spring) and had no issues. Drove great. I did adjust the valves last night and it sounds so much better.

it is there to keep the drive gear down into the block and not jump up and skip a tooth I was told. Not sure how that could happen if the dizzy is locked in there. Anyways it will be put back once I get the gear pulled and new washers installed, I will put the spring back.

almost destroyed my OG rack. I was getting ready to take it off so I could park the bus in the garage and I dismounted the rack but had to put the tools away before taking the rack off. So the rack was loose and then I got distracted by some other things and then jumped in the bus to park it in the garage. The rack was half way off the bus when I stopped. #-o ](*,)

Got out and took the rack off. No damage to the rack thankfully.

I was laughing after I found out I didn't destroy the rack.

Another reason why I should slam this SO42 :evil:

Finally took the rest of the tint off the windows. Found I have a leaking wheel cylinder this morning so I will need to replace that.

Oh and I finally got around to fixing the distributor problem I had a few weeks ago. I pulled the distributor drive gear out and added 2 washers. There was one washer there but I just added the 2 I bought. Also set the timing correct (drive gear inserted correctly) and set the timing on the distributor. No issues.

I finished the long block for the campers 1915.
Installed the new CB Performance Panchito heads.
Now the wait for The Kaddie Shack to get my carbs back to me.

I did have one small issue, The Pyro-man noticed it at the very end.
What was I thinking!!

I was going to say he is short but then I looked closer. Good catch. I am sure that would have resulted in a very hot engine
