O.K.
I've put this 327 in my 67 but I don't know the cam spec's(big) .I set the valves at .020(solids) when I put a light on it 8-10 degrees is to much and it barks when you try to start it ,if I back off the timing until it starts good (off the tab retarded).then it back fires though the exhaust every time you get off the gas . runs better when it's avd.(hard to start),but still don't have much power in 2nd,3rd,and 4th.
BTW it's 327 11:1 small valve heads(441's)performer in take,holley 600 vac sec,accell hei dist .m21 4 spd.3.08(?)peg leg 10 bolt.
runs at about 210 degrees.

maybe I should just buy a new cam with spec's???????????????????????

are you sure its for your car?, did you degree the camshaft? or just plop it in , hows the timing chain?

Give Comp a call and they can help with a cam choice, many people tell you get this , or get that, when its more your personal preference ,

they can help with the decision and answer any questions you may have..

their toll free # is 1-800-999-0853

If the timing numbers you are reading are really correct (no spun balancer or mismatched timing pointer...have you verified that tdc on the balancer is really tdc for the engine?) then it sounds like you need a high torque starter. GM made 2 distinctly different types of starts for the old V-8's...a standard duty and a heavy duty or higher torque version. Or you may simply need a new starter or cables. If the starter is a little weak then any added resistance can really drag it down...it may work perfectly fine on a 8.5-1 engine for years but only be marginal for your engine. Also, if you are running your timing heavily retarded to get it to start, it will run hot.

got a call from the guy s son that I bought the motor from
he said .022 int .024 exh. for the lifters and 30 degrees total add 3g's.he said they never timed the motor at idle,he also brought up the starter deal,they always spun the motor and then put the juice to it
it was a race only motor in a 71 all steel nova 4 spd, with (he thinks) 4.56 gears
ha said it ran 11.20's at capital raceway in crofton md.
unfortuneity I'll be out of town this weekend(O.C.cruise with no car)and can't work on it again until the following weekend

I'll let yous know what I come up with!

I know the pistons have a rised area on one side but they have GM cast in to the bottom side with numbers but I could'nt find them any where I didn't think GM put out anything higher then 11.5 to 1
If I can find the numbers I'll post them maybe someone knows what they are
