Life has been crazy and the last thing in the list of priorities has been the digger. Even so, I've still been dinking with it. Everytime I tried to fire her it would hit but wouldn't run right. The first time I'm convinced I did have the cam timing off but I've re-degreed it enough to be an expert now. It was still doing the same thing. I gave Chicken a call and he agreed to come over and see if he could see what I was doing wrong. Didn't take him long. I was using a battery charger to power the pertronix in the temp startup distributor. Evidently it does not provide true DC power but pulses. We hooked it up to a battery and it fired right up, and I do mean right up! THANK YOU CHICKEN!!! I switched over to the Vertex this afternoon and have that running nice. You can see in the following video that I need to clean up wiring but right now I'm just glad she's running. The temp hoses are now gone and I'm starting the switch over to the blower and injection.
