With that mild cam, that procedure probably worked ok.  If you want to be certain, then it takes two complete revolutions of the engine.  Pull the rocker covers, turn the engine over by hand using a s

Double check your pushrods for straightness.  Rolling them on a flat piece of glass works really well.  If one wobbles at all, you know it's bent. Keep everything in order so you can reinstall in

It's very common for your 60 year old harmonic balancer to be off due to slippage and the old rubber.  But doesn't rule out timing gear/chain probs. Too much slack will alter timing and may not have j

The first picture is the ground strap to engine. The second is the ground strap to body. Can a ground strap actually go bad? Could they be to small? They measure 10" long but only 1/4" wide?

they sure can, looking at those measurements its quiet bad, they both should be well below zero , after all its just a bit of wire the power should be able to get from one end to the other with next to no resistance.

one trick you could try Wrongway is to clean up the crimps and solder the crimp only, or justA buy some new ones 

my 64 has the same earths, what i am going to fit is a earth strap the same size as the positive lead is that runs to the starter from battery straight to the block. and then a 6mm strap from motor to body but using new stuff. 👍

This is what i will use its about 3/8 and i will solder flat eyelets on both ends, i dont trust crimps:) and this is pretty much justA for the current draw that the starter pulls👍

So my ground from the battery to the engine is 2AWG. The same size as from the battery to starter. Would that be good for the grounds also or is that to big? I don't care about ordering new straps and soldering on the ends. I just want whichever will be better. Is it possible for the ground strap to be to big?

Ok great guy's thanks. So I'll order some ends for this cable and use it for new grounds. No Kiwi I didn't pull the negative from the battery to block yet. I will bro. I kind of got distracted teaching my son how to use the bench grinder and watching how safe he was.
