Wacky 426 power
Posted April 06, 2007 - 08:03 AM
the power is weird, hardly any bottom end, moderate mid range, and crazy fast on top.
Im thinking its the clutch going out,
or could my carb be clogged from sitting around ?
or is it the 400 head?
tell me what you think

by the way, for all of you people who say bikes dont run on wrong timing....... yes they do. mine ran normally for four days.... it just sounded like it was pinging/knocking I thought it was the new piston. turns out it was the three intake valves smacking the piston in the face.
its not knocking anymore..... so it must be right:applause:

How did you cap off the vacuum port on 400 head intake port? Might want to spray some ether, carb cleaner or WD40 on it with the bike sitting at idle. If it's leaking and you spray some on it, the RPM should rise...
My first guess would also have been cam timing...it never hurts to double check.

The intake hole was tapped with a screw. I sprayed some wd 40 and nothing happened im pretty sure its not leaking, although the decompression lever is leaking oil is that bad ?
Did you lube the cable? If so then ya it's ok to leak out... if not then, I dont know how else it could happen..
