  4. I have a question to ask about my 620 I put everything on the outside of my engine I don't know what to do it will miss one minute and then start running right the engine has a whining noise just wandering if you might have any ideas what my problem might be.

      Whine? L series don't usually whine. Maybe the fan belt. There are spray on belt dressings you could try. I've rubbed a hard bar of soap on the belt sides while idling (very dangerous) to do the same thing.


      What oil are you using? brand and viscosity? When changed last?


      Pull the plugs and examine them. Dry black soot? wet and oily? Tan/light brown? Are any bright white porcelain?

    Thanks for the info i pulled the old distributor out and put a new one in the same way the old one came out but when I tried to get it to run it back fired I thought I got it out of time so I took it apart to check the timing and every thing seems to be in order just wondering what I should do next
