Jeepboy89 I guess I'm gonna have to get ahold of comp cams and make sure the numbers are right and make sure they sold me the right cam. I timed it as if it were a distributed motor Tdc and then positioned the oil pump as stated in the book and then set the cam position sensor back in with the plug facing the back of the jeep

UnlimitedLJ04 CompCams doesn't list a cam that meets those specs. http://www.compcams.com/catalog/COMP...2011_20-25.pdf

The only cam remotely close is 68-232-4, and that has significantly higher valve lift and requires Mopar Performance valve springs. If you have that cam, you may have actually wrecked components of the valvetrain at this point. Lots of people burn up cams and lifters in no time flat with improper assembly....

Also, was the timing advanced when installing the cam? How did you go about installing the cam position sensor? Was the motor at TDC?

UFOtestpilot What's your engine management? I'll let you know that we are outside of my Jeep experience, but still within the realm of my general automotive understanding, just to be clear.

Jeepboy89 The head had all ew springs put in reground seated and the only things I didn't change were the push rods and the rockers. Other than that the machine shop did all the cleaning up of the head and put it all back together. Other than those two things.

UFOtestpilot They said this would work on stock valve springs? Are your valve springs in good shape? Are your valves seating properly? How many miles on the head?

Jeepboy89 When I called and spoke to the guys at comp cams I told them that the motor was bored 30 over and that I wanted to change nothing in the head. They told me that the cam they were going to sell me was gonna work fine with the stock head. That's the only reason why I agreed to order the one I did. I have the numbers for lift and duration maybe someone can tell me if it's still good for a stock head or not.

Duration is
206
212
50 thousands
The intake valve is
.435
The exhaust valve is
.448
Lobe separation is
.113.

Lol. Sounds like the guy who threw a huge single plane intake and a double pumper carb and wonders why his car is a huge turd out of the hole.

UFOtestpilot Did you match the cam lift and duration to the intake and exhaust?
04-03-2014 03:14 PM
UFOtestpilot Probably won't help at all. If it's backfire it's timing related. Since you can't tune the ECM if you aren't running stand alone engine management you likely have an overlap at your cam.

Jeepboy89 It sounds like it's coming from the intake when it does it. I was gonna try taking the muffler off and seeing if opening it up some would help

UFOtestpilot Back fire is in the intake or pre-combustion, afterfire is in the exhaust. The diagnosis and fixes differ for the two so the distinction can be important. The afterfire popping is usually an enriched condition.
04-03-2014 02:07 PM
Jeepboy89 Seems like back fire what is the difference
04-03-2014 02:05 PM
UFOtestpilot Backfire or after fire?

Ok so I just rebuilt my engine biggest comp cam and .30 pistons new oil pump and sending unit head totally reworked timing set but now it seems like the thing is loading up on fuel or it has to much back pressure. When I rap out in third the engine wants to bog out and backfire any ideas on what this could be. I'm running 93 octane in it as we'll. please help
