Ok, so if anyone has read my last few threads you will know about all of my rebuild problems; beak-in, bent valves, overheating, etc. Right now the engine is in the car and has a brand new coolant system. It's still trying to overheat on me. That's the first problem. The second problem is that the carb is running really rich and the engine still wants more fuel... So we're thinking the the cam is too big. It's a high energy 268h comp cam. Instead of getting a different cam we were thinking of putting smaller ratio rocker arms on it. Has anyone ever had any similar problems? or have suggestions on what I could do? Keep in mind all of the engine internals and components are brand new and now have about 200 miles on them. My wallet is thinning out and I need the car running this week. Any help would be awesome!
