    Valve lash gage.

    This guy says replacing rocker arm worked: https://forums.hybridz.org/topic/106910-loud-tickingknocking-noise/ I actually made the ticking noise happen by setting the valve lash to 10/12 so I know I can just set it back.

    Valve lash gage.

    Update: The lash pads are all unseated. Observe: Besides replacing them, I guess I'll just have to press them down while setting up the valve lash. Any of you guys do this? Also some of these Cam lobes had jagged sides.

    They were all too tight, tighter than 0.010 and 0.012, cold settings. Which is what I'll be keeping it at. Except exaust valve #1, that was in spec. And yeah, ham it up guys. I got my Cam and point experience from 60's motorbikes and a pack of rollies.

    Thanks got it.

    Valve lash gage.

    Hey, I'm having trouble setting the valve lash because the lash caps are in the way. Do I have to buy tiny feeler gages to fit between the lash caps opening? I was told the valve lash had been done but I'm going over it myself to be sure.

    Hmm I was pretty sure the power circuit kicked in before the secondary circuit.

    Yeah that's what I'd do if I didn't have a spare. I was just putting the spring on the linkage for the vacuum actuated secondary, and I wonder...what would happen if I didn't? I wouldn't mind an early shot of go juice Although it would probably just turn into a self feeding vacuum that never stops reving.

    Ya thats what I'm saying, with pictures. Oh I see now, I meant to say the rod mechanism that actuates the power valve was failing, because It wasn't responding well to vacuum. Sorry, I cannot tell if the power valve is failing, my mistake, derp.

    I know one is failing because - One responds easily when I suck on it, and the bad one does not.

    Closed Open^ ^You can emulate high manifold vacuum here with a piece of vacuum tube.

    I had not noticed that in my original post, so thanks for pointing that out. But that doesn't tell me if the plug is factory set or not. Maybe I can google k4 vs k3, but I doubt it. Another air of mystery... So far I found 1 failing power valve, and one...failed diaphragm that was prabably a vacuum leak. It was in the...uhh warmup choke linkage thingamabob. And by the way mike, those are pictures of two torn down carburators, one was a rebuilt $XXX carb, the other came with the truck.

    Thanks Mike, I've been creeping you guys for a couple years now so I already knew all about that screw and your carb, was very helpful for me. I have an electronic distributor, so no need to set point gaps. Timing set to 12 btdc. Firing order set 1,3,4,2 counterclockwise Valve lash is set. I want to make sure the plugged port I pictured is not a modification, and is factory set. Is it? Not sure if you read the first bit because you repeated what I had just said, I'm interested in the piece that the power valve pushes down on - the piece I pictured in my hand. It doesn't look serviceable. I'm curious how it meters gas with one tiny hole.

    Well, if anyone could tell me why one carb has a solid brass blocked port, and the other a metered port - It would be greatly appreciated. Don't want to tear it down again.

    Crickets chirpin' over here...perhaps all the enthusiasts toss their hitachis? Anyways, Lucy, you've got some splainin to do! Check this out, I have a rebuilt carb that never worked right, next to the original. There's a stamp, one says K4, and the original says K3. Dufuq? I tested the vacuum response of the power valve rods, and the original did not respond well unless I sucked super duper hard. The one with the spring sucked up easily. I had the original on the car because the rebuilt one didn't work right. If my valve wasn't responding well to vacuum, then shouldn't I have been running rich all the time, making it not the reason I lacked some power?
