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 400hpYeah not even engine donor worthy due to emissions!
that is one hell of a grill

Bloody hell!Have had this week off, so last Sunday I prepped the Fury for summer cruising
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
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!)

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

Replacement unit on it's way
Any idea what caused it? Did a bearing in the distributor seize or maybe a weight jam in it?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
