    Apologies for the pedantic prattle, Josh. I misread your commentary and picture.

    To get one that comes in that close you need to live a charmed life. At least I do. Normally I always end up...

    If it will run on starter fluid then your problem is fuel delivery.

    Either the electrical harness to the injectors could be damaged, or the tune in the ECU is faulty or the ECU itself is faulty. ...

    It sounds like a fuel delivery issue. If you use a starting fluid will the engine attempt to start or just turnover w/o starting?

    Timing covers are head geometry specific. 2V Heads need 2V covers. 3V heads need 3V covers. 4V heads need 4V covers. They can not be mixed and matched.

    That is night and day better, Nick. That said, there is still a rhythmic metallic tapping sound that should not be there. An automotive stethoscope might be helpful in pinpointing it.

    Just go to Summit and search on Cruise Control Kits. You'll get a significant number of kits. Alternatively Google Cruise Control Kits and you'll find even more.
