    I've been told to swap the cam gear and the wiring and keep the metal manifold peace its self. or should everything should be changed over?

    I got the timing on point but it still won't start I haven't swapped the intake manifold I think that's the problem but I don't know. did you swap yours or did you use the one that was one the 25block?

    Ya they can be tricky, sometimes i get the DOHC first try, sometime it takes two days and 6 tries. the marks on new the belts are nice

    no i didnt't replace any timing components but i came back one day to find that the belt was off (dad though everything was old but saw it was better than his) I lined up the marks and maybe it jumped time when tightening everything back up.

    Did you put a new timing kit on it? The old one was new, just a little rusty from not having the cover for a little while

    I spaced the new plugs and still wont start but I looked around and it might be off time. So i pulled off the cover i put on and behold its 2 teeth off. I was getting backfire out of the manifold and looked up that and that is what came back. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible i need the car for work.

    not that i know of, only time it was hard to start is when the plugs got gapped too big. gap them around .035 to .040. It was running good when i pulled it out to swap in turbo motor.

    I got everything hooked up and it turns over but wont fully start. I got new plugs and I'm getting fuel but I don't know if the coil Is bad or it has a bad battery. I was going to swap coils but their not compatible I'm going to see if I'm getting spark or not tonight but I need to wait for help. Is there anything I can do to get it going or was there any strange tricks you did to make it work?
