Down for the count
You honestly need to have the timing cover off to grind it the right way. Use a Dremel and shave off very small bits at a time. You will go right through the cover if you aren't careful. You have to remove quite a bit of material. You also need to grind on the TDC and other timing marks on the cover to make the balancer fit.well i think im a dumb **** and may have found my problem. I just put the pulley on. Imthinking the pulley may be stuck. Can i just take a file to it, or what is the "best way" to do it. :dunce:
Ill check to make sure i did not put the exciter wheel on backwards as well.
Also I did not do any of the engine work I paid a shop to do the assembly of the motor and he took pictures for me of the cam timing process. Ill have to find the invoice later but he said he had to advance timing 4* not 100% sure if that is okay.
