As good a theory as any, I'd run with it.

Glad it wasn't parts flying around. I'm always getting onto the boys because whenever one of them has vehicle problems they immediately assume the worst possible scenario. And that's exactly what I did.

Might not hurt to change the oil.

Oh yeah, that's on my list. As soon as winter loosens its grip on my part of the world, I'll pull the oil pump & distributor, move the oil pump shaft one tooth, remount everything in the way the pic I located too late indicates, and mount the other valve cover. Then I'll see if it starts & develops oil pressure.

It's gonna be a while though-- 6" of snow on the ground, and no real warmup in sight.

After moving that oil pump one tooth as described above, I'm no closer to getting this curse running than I ever was, even after spending six hours trying. Nothing works, and all I get is stumbling and backfiring.

I've quit because I don't want to blow up yet another valve cover. Hopefully a buddy of mine can figure out what the problem is, because I can't go near that red menace without wanting to do it some serious harm.

Whoever designed a distributor that drives off the oil pump was a complete and utter moron, and I hope he died penniless and painfully.

The affection I used to feel for the 230 OHC is gone, likely never to return.

I can commiserate with your frustration.

I am absolutely certain that with persistence (intestinal fortitude, gumption, grit, cajones, chutzpah, sand) you will convince and cajole that 230 into running.

I'll tip my glass to the sputter-free Nailhead!

Thanks Brian-- I appreciate your confidence.

Thing is, I'm not sure I want to expend any more time/money toward this. I've vaporized hundreds of dollars and at least 12 hours with nothing to show for it. I'm going to give it a few days, but at this moment selling it as it sits seems a very sensible choice. This is the kind of crap that makes me want to pick up smoking again.

If you start smoking, you'll have less to spend on your M715 and you'll spend more on your health insurance and out of pocket medical expenses. Plus, you'll start looking like a dried up 'ol zombie and everyone with an AR will want to take pot-shots at you! haha

Put a tablespoon of water in one of your friend's full ash trays and take a deep whiff.* That stinky M715 smells a lot better brother!

Ha!

It would be restart actually, Brian; I smoked for years, and don't miss them at all, except on really icy roads and dealing with the parts of life that make me madder than a wet cat.
