What's about just swapping in one of your thousand Oppys? the one that runs good with the adjustable carb. Or another one. Or if you have some $ get a Vanguard Twin like mine

Swapping in another oppy would involve swapping in all the other little nuances i have on this oppy and that's just not happening

That anchor idea isnt bad, i could use it as a mace too

No difference with carb clean. Heads and intake are coming off.

Heads are off

Left


Right


Right and left


Left one has a few blowouts, right seems ok. All the head bolts seemed to be at a proper torque. I cleaned the carbon off of everything. I'm gonna order some head gaskets here directly and hopefully they'll get here soon lol.

Intake didn't show any problems either.

Last i knew it was about 90. These engines are set up with the compression release as part of the intake lobes so it always kinda reads there.

Can you turn the valves just by pressing your thumb on the valve and trying to turn it?

With them seated?

I went to switch the starter again but the one i was switching it with turned out to be dry and noisy too, so i took this starter all apart and greased it and put it back together. I'll put it back on tomorrow

Yeah if you have a carb and manifold you know are good I say swap it on and see if it changes anything.
