pulled off fuel rail, found some fuel that seemed to be seeping out of the rail around where its brazed. Definitely not safe, but I doubt it was causing miss fires.
Pulled off intake manifold, found some potential vacuum leaks, though they held fine @ 22psi pressure test, ill be welding them shut this time to eliminate variable.
pulled off valve cover.
with crank at top dead center, cam notches line up with cap arrows. This is the cam chain timing I have. I checked it 1000000 times but if anyone could please verify it.
did leak down with valve cover off:
3: 6% 6:50% air coming out of intake valves
2: 6% 4:10% noticable out of intake
1: 20% air comming out of intake valves 3:10%
as the queen of hearts would say, off with their heads.
Half tempted to pull the block to and go 3.0L.
