if the outer surfaces are rusty usually it is not a problem. they will probably work all right. just make sure the spark gap is correct. try getting everything adjusted and make sure the carburetor is clean with fresh petrol in it. if you would prefer to let me help you better please contact me by email. just drop the spam from my email address. budd sorry but i didnt have all of the messages. to budd thank you for the ajustments. the old spark plugs are very rusty. -- arverne budd cochran mr-d150@citlinkspam.net a crit dans le message de like the sign says in the mens room in japan gentlemen will please to aim. vbg thanks mac. budd on wed 01 sep 2004 234402 gmt budd cochran mr-d150@citlinkspam.net wrote good call changing the gap to metric budd... well done! be glad that i am not trying to speak in the french i learned in high school 40 years ago mon amie. your english is not so bad. ;^ let me do some more searching for a supplier in europe for you possibly bosch. have you tried to remove and clean the spark plugs that are in the engine if you can set the gap at 0.9 mm set the contact points in the distributor at 0.41 mm and the spark timing at 12 degrees before top dead center. budd please excuse the mistakes im french they are on the engine but are out of work. and i cant find the same they are not made anymore. -- arverne budd cochran mr-d150@citlinkspam.net a crit dans le message de where are the ones that were in it budd hello what kind of spark plugs must i use for an old wc51 thanks -- arverne mac .

brian and tom first of all thanks very much for your responses. i got the caliper off and cotter pin but for the life of me i cant get the castle nut off. i even tried a six foot pole on the end of a ratchet handle which should have produced about nine times the force of the 18 inch handle on the ratchet and all i ended up doing is guess what breaking the handle. is there anything else i can try are the threads opposite i did try both ways but more so counter clockwise. brian you mentioned something about cutting the castle nut off. forgive my ignorance but how can i cut it off thanks steve .

fred parker wrote first of all make sure that your balancer has two reference marks on it. if not the lower scale will do you no good even if you find one. if it does then check around in some local boneyards for the scale. the one on my van has two bolts that go into the front of the block and locate it at about 5 oclock when viewing from the front of the engine. it has both a degree scale and the tubular jig. you cant miss the thing when you look for it. the degree scale goes up to 30 i believe. i called up a bunch of junkyards & finally found a guy who said he had a timing indicator for a dodge. looking in front there are 2 holes in the engine block around the harmonic balancer 930 position & 230 position. i bought some spacers & was able to put the timing-mark indicator in the 930 position http//www.comet-track.com/4x4van/side.jpg the 2 red arrows point to the tdc marks on the harmonic balancer. http//www.comet-track.com/4x4van/bot.jpg the 2 red arrows point to the bolts in the 930 & 230 position. the red cross indicates a timing mark indicator hack i made a year ago ignore it i plugged the vacuum advance & set the rpm to 800rpm & checked to see where the timing is at. its way up like around 10 deg atdc!! i scribed a mark on the distributor shaft as reference & started playing with timing. i could get the mark to be 5 btdc but the engine ran more rough & even stalled at one point. so i moved the distributor back to the original position. the engine in my 82 dodge van was a re-built engine thrown in it originally was a 318v8. i really have no idea what the timing is supposed to be. checking the clymer manuals the 360 v8 are around 10-12 btdc. if it does then check around in some local boneyards for the scale. the one on my van has two bolts that go into the front of the block and locate it at about 5 oclock when viewing from the front of the engine. how does your indicator attach to the block..using the hole in the 230 position is it possible that my timing-mark indicator is not in the right position it is simply spaced out from the 930 position. yours sounds like there is a drop-down bracket to put it at the 5o clock position. -------- can people tell me what their timing mark indicators for a 360 v8 look like & where theyre located & how theyre mounted. b yen just for laughs i checked with the parts guy at a local dealership here that i am friends with. his guess is that the tubular jig that the dealers are giving you is just the tube for the top mark that bolts to the water pump housing which does you no good. it is possible that the lower marker that i have on my van was offered as part of a service bulletin - to make adjusting the timing easier install mopar part number xxx. problem is that that part wont be listed in the master part list for your van. so best bet is to talk to a mopar tech at the dealership who is an old timer to see if he remembers the part number or search the boneyards. if you want i can look around here to see what i see - just no guarantees as to when i can get out to do it. hope this helps - fredp -----original message----- from b yen mailtobyen00@earthlink.net sent wednesday july 02 2003 259 pm to mopartruckenthusiast@yahoogroups.com subject re mopartruckenthusiast timing indicators fred parker wrote my van has two reference marks cut into the balancer. one is for use with the timing marks the are built onto the timing cover; the other is for use with the special marker plate that offset and below. its at about 5 oclock as you face the front of the balancer the lower marker was added on many vans because of the air pumps and other accessories making it difficult to time the engine from the top. where do you get this lower marker like i say i went to 2 dealers & all they could find was this tubular jig which i could never properly bolt on b yen if you have the special equipment to time the engine with the probe that fits in the tubular jig you can time it that way - otherwise you guessed it - you crawl under the front of the van with the timing light in hand and have a buddy twist the distributor from up top! when doing this be extra careful of your timing light wires and make sure that they dont get caught in the fan or touch the header pipes - you will be extending them close to there limits dont ask how i know!. good luck! fredp -----original message----- from b yen sent wednesday july 02 2003 247 am to mopartruckenthusiast@yahoogroups.com subject mopartruckenthusiast timing indicators i have a 82 dodge van the previous owner put in a rebuilt 360 v8. when i got it the timing indicator was a homebrew jig which was a plate near the bottom of the timing-chain cover. it fell off a long time ago. i was scanning the junkyars a year ago & i saw dodge timing covers which had the timing mark

well then tell me what i am doing wrong. here is a link to a few pix of the spark plugs in my truck. http//homepage.mac.com/treydog/sparkplugsh/index.htm trey wrote i just cant grip the wires with those damn heat shields. sure i could just grab the wire and yank! but will pretty much ruin the wire. the heat shield covers most of the connecter on the end. takes me an hour just to get the wires out then ten minutes to change the plugs. thats strange. i havent had that problem. .
