My mate Andrew took me through it when he was helping me build my last engine, it baffled the bananas out of me then!
However with what he showed me then, I can now get my head round reading through the Dave Andrews guide to cam timing, which is well worth reading and following as you go.
I was going to time mine up to the spec that Piper dictate but Iíve since decided to leave it as factory and play with it on the rolling road instead.

I'm glad u chose to do that. In my opinion it saves it doing your nutt in and then doing it again.after all its only when on the rollers you can see what has been gained

We can play with a little then to move the power and torque around to try and make it more useable.

Itís a K series, no weight to it!
Itís working anyhow.



Jib is rated to 300kg extended like it is, hoist is rated at 250kg doubled up as it is.

Needs a diagonal from the end of the jib back to the post. Have you lifted an engine with it yet?

Just had my engine trial fitted with it, need to cut and re-weld the bar I put in, diff is hitting it and I need about another 10mm to get the gearbox side back, no big deal.
There is a diagonal already.

Going to modify the extra bottom bracing I put in this weekend, my measurements were off by 10mm and the diff casing hits it, once Iíve done that and touched up the POR15 then I can drop the engine in.
Iíve also decided to change the fuel rail for one that uses AN-6 JIC fittings instead, Iíve ordered the fittings for the fuel pressure regulator to so itíll almost look professional!
Iíll get some pics once all the parts arrive.

Keep thinking about doing my fuel rail like that. My fuel pressure drops off quickly once the ignition is turned off.

It may or may not solve your issue, but it would eliminate the fuel lines and fittings as the problem I guess.
Could be a faulty regulator or something else.

It's had new pump and regulator so can only put it down to hoses and clips. Using proper fuel clips too.
