    Ah, I'll check and see what gauge is on the dyno we use. It's a stand alone. Sometimes it picks up valvetrain clatter depending on where you put the sensor.

      Thanks Hemirunner. It is a solid roller motor so valvetrain noise might be a issue.....

      Straight out................I have no experience with knock sensors.

      What I can tell you is I primed the engine with a 1/4 drive speed wrench yesterday. 67 psi oil pressure just gently cranking it by hand and with the drill motor it had 75 psi. I installed the plug wires this morning and the dyno is being re-assembled as I type this. I'm about to prepare the 850 Mighty Demon to mount on the engine. If we don't fire this afternoon we will tomorrow morning.

      I'm a case having of the bumps-of-the-geese myself.

        Rumour is that the MW port head will be out this summer.

          That figures, lol. This guy wouldn't want to wait and they won't fit his choice of intake. I bet they'll make plenty of power over these on a big cube combo.

                Sometimes when you show up in the morning you find that you and the crew were not on the same page the night before. When I got here there were two 1 ton diesels in the shop. One without the transfer case and the other had the engine removed. At least they hadn't disassembled the Harley they brought in.

                  Have you used Rick Ehrenberg's reluctor? I believe it has six slots and can help in these situations (rotor phasing problems or misfire).

                    No, not for long. They are doing heli-arc on the aluminum transfer case and the high frequency will play havoc with the dyno. 'Bought ready to go.

                        Jim made a easy pull to 5300 rpm, looking good! I'll let him do the reporting........ (dramatic pause).........

                          Just found Rick's Ebay page and bought his multiposition reluctor. Now just need to figure out if I need it or not and how to dial it in.

                          How did you know the distributor's rotor wasn't "phased" where it needed to be? Do you always check for this and how?

                          Waiting on the results :popcorn:

                              This is some great info! Teaching an old dog new tricks!

                              I'm thinking that Jim found that this distributor was out by checking visually, not with a running engine?

                              This is something that can be easily overlooked and it can have a great effect on how the engine preforms. Very easy to take this for granted.

                              Thanks cryplydog and 440beep for your info!
