Re: stock valve train geometry

I don't know what you are after, but the ideal contact of the rocker arm on the valve stem is as follows. At maximum lift the contact should be in the center of the valve stem. The sweep of the rocker arm should start at the first 1/3rd, full lift center & after full lift the last would be the l...

Re: No compression in one cylinder.. anything I can do before pulling head?

You only have 9V at the stator, the choke needs 12V. You need to use a relay triggered by the stator so you get a full 12V at the choke coil.
