Hope someone can help...I am new to this forum, please bear with me and give me any advice you can.
I have an 86' CJ7 w/ a 350 bored 30 over, standard distributor, an RV cam (don't know the brand or specs unfortunately), and a brand new Edelbrock performer 600cfm carb.
It runs beautifully while cold, but once fully warmed up, it seems one of the cylinders isn't firing 80-90% of the time.. every once in a while it will catch, and I can feel the surge in power, but mostly it misses and sounds like a 2 stroke engine
Here's where I have looked for as far as solutions/ remedies:
1. new remy dist. cap and rotor; have vacuum advance set to ported (passenger side) vacuum port on the Edelbrock carb (tried the full vaccum port, but it would die sometimes when shifting out of idle)
2. new plugs
3. new wires
4. played with timing (don't know where exactly I should have it since I don't know the specs on the cam) anywhere between 8-16 BTDC after it is fully warmed up (runs much better at idle at the higher advance, but poorer under load) (anyone know what I should set it at?)
5. all vac. hoses are new, as well as carb gasket, so no vac. leaks.
also what's a good idle speed for this set up.. I have it at around 950 rpm
please help!!!! and thanks in advance
