I do have the FSM open. I figured it out though, and it turns perfectly. I found a bolt on the clutch/driveplate that was too long so changed it out and solved the issue.
I checked the timing, it’s on TDC and has excellent compression.
My issue is that I’m having to takeover someone else’s work. And let’s just say the organization is somewhat lacking. I have experience in doing this but it has been years and I’m just getting too old and it’s a lot harder for me than it was 10 years ago.
So if anyone one here lives in Las Vegas NV would like a side job helping me finish this car, please let me know I will pay you and feed you too. I have all the tool needed and currently getting ready to put on the transmission to the engine then hopefully be ready to slide the whole thing back into the car.
