This has to be the worst Build I have ever done - I must be getting senile as I tried to fire the thing up over a week ago.. Lots of crankity crankity crankity but it would only pop and wheeze..

I got to thinking about the problem and realized that I centerlined the Cam on #1 Exhaust rather than intake.

Well that will cause your engine not to fire.

Other things that went wrong..

-Massive Oil leak on Pan rail / Scraper
-Water Pump Leak
- Smith Brothers sent 11 out of 12 screws with threads
- Discovered 36-1 trigger wheel was cracked and wiggily; tried to weld it - Turned it into scrap, so I bought a Holley 60-2 Wheel and futz'd with some settings in tuner studio.. got that working.

Old DIYAutotune 36-1 6 3/4" Wheel - They start with 1/2" center hole - enlarged it to 1" with a notch for keyway. - it cracked along the egde where it was clamped by spacers. Tried to weld it which made it garbage.

Comparison of New and old wheel - Holley 60-2 already had a 1" center hole - perfect for my Moroso SBC Mandrel drive which uses 1" Mandrel with keyway.

It's nice to have access to the Cam Gear and chain when you cant time the cam correclty on the engine stand :-o

We'll See if engine build #3 with new Head, Block, Crank will be any better then Engine #1 or #2.

We all go through cycles of doofyness. You got it goin', which is the important part! Persistence solves almost everything.
