Oh man...I almost forgot to share some polish work on the CF hood.

left wipe clean

Hood polish looks great!

There's got to be more going on with the timing jumping..... Is it really that common? Are you bleeding those tensioners before bolting them up?

I've never had my timing jump and I can beat on the car a bit with track/autocross, knock on wood

Thanks man! it was worth it IMO.

As of right now, I suspect overall length of the Longblock to be shorter than the belt. I don’t know the engines complete history prior to my reconditioning of the cylinder heads. At that time I do not recall how much was taken off during the resurfacing either. A New belt and oem tensioner were used last jump and the belt was still referred too as “loose.”

• has tomei guide
• cover guide spacing has been checked
• Tensioners have been “bled” this time per gates

last suspect could be an internal head issue: cam oiling, monetary cam seizure, heck possibilities are endless. I’m just back tracking starting with timing components. Hopefully after the “poor mans” RCM. It’ll be fine.

I’ve also been having sticking starter issues...it may seem far fetched, but could a starter hang be a suspect?

Gosh, would not have thought about block/head spacing or resurfacing being enough of a difference, but it does make sense as a possibility?

Is it the same starter in the car as picked up from the yard?

I wonder if the jumping timing thing was at least part of the reason it ended up junked in the first place? Unless there was something else outside the sketch wiring? I can't quite remember now, haha.

It is a possibility, but I'd think by now I would have at least kissed a valve; which makes the situation more baffling.

Yes, same starter too.

Beats me. I've been putting off pulling out the wire harness to have it redone. But, I can't any longer as I wish to sort the car properly. I also want to add a 6spd in the mix since the 5spd does whine and it'll make the 5x114 conversion easier.

I've never had a sticking starter..... but I guess maybe I could see that jamming things up enough for a split second to cause a timing jump... If came on the car from the junkyard, I suppose it's potentially suspect as well.

Seems silly to bin a working starter, but stranger things have happened?

Me either. Only time will tell. The occurrences have happened in-between start ups, on short trips.

for now the poor mans RCM/IAG "old style" stuff has arrived.

It’s a good thing you are relentless, glad you are getting it fixed.

I just hate to fail by taking the lazy approach. If I try and try and still fail, I can take that "L" properly.... that it was just beyond me/my talent.
