I assume you checked the valve clearances? I'm working on a friend's 426 right now with the same problem. Center intake valve is shot.

cheers. i checked the timing all is ok. some times the decomp lever pushes the valve down and on other times in misses the valve completly. ill check the valve clearances now. cheers

The 426 does not have an auto decomp (the 450's do). It is a hole new process to kick a 426 over!
