Yeah not even engine donor worthy due to emissions!
It's a wonder how they got them that low. I know we joke about the mid year C3s with 165 bhp, but you can't build one that low powered! There's an article where they took a stock 165'er, put headers, intake, carb and some timing on it and got 220hp, then threw on a pair of AFRs with a medium cam and 2 points of comp and hit over 400hp

Have had this week off, so last Sunday I prepped the Fury for summer cruising :cool:

Fired her up as I have been all through Covid, and let her sit and warm up on 'fast idle as usual. Then suddenly it was as if someone pulled a battery lead... not a carb stutter as I'd expect when it's cold :unsure:

Spent three days changing plugs and multimetering everything in sight and scratching my head, until by chance I noticed the rotor arm wasn't spinning (not so easy cranking and looking on your own!)

Yeah, that's not right :poop:

292539


Was sure fun getting the missing bit out of the crankcase without dropping it and totalling the motor :sick:

292540


Replacement unit on it's way :)

Yeah I'll be having nightmares about removing that bit for sure!

Keeping positive, at least it happened at 1100rpm stationary in my workshop - not at motorway speeds miles from home

Any idea what caused it? Did a bearing in the distributor seize or maybe a weight jam in it?
