    Well got my registration submitted for the 2020 GBC which filled all 75 spots in less than 24 hours!
    Just a little bit popular right now!
    I have been trying to sort the fuel issue I am running into; it wont hold an idle. I did manage to get it running at half throttle and above but it dies like it is running out of fuel.
    Fuel pump checks out and I am running from a jerry can for test and tune purposes so it's not a bad tank or lines.
    Put a vacuum gauge on it and it rapidly fluctuates from 12" to 18" of vacuum so I assume valve clearances are out.
    Pulled the valve cover again (I already ran the valves) and found that the intake valve on cylinder 4 is bent again.

    Found out that the intake valve is stuck shut. Dammit-that means pulling the head. Hope it is gummed up from old fuel and sitting for so long and isn't bent.

    Quite the saga with that engine. I’m on the hunt for my 2020 GBC vehicle and can’t decide if I want to go old or play it safe and get something late 80s-90s.
