Let me quickly recount the nightmare. Engine driving Heston 310 fails spectacularly. Crankshaft broken. Sent to rebuilder as core for rebuilt short block. Came with wrong crankshaft could not use, sent it back, twice. was very specific about requirements the first time. Hayed with borrowed cutter bar. this spring have block with correct shaft assembled rest of it mounted it on Heston. Started governor broke. Had to replace pin it rides on and governor. Think the one that broke must have been damaged when I got it as I had some problem getting it together. Seemed tight in cam gear. reassembled, 30 PSI on cylinder 2 and 4 replaced head gasket. seated valves, checked for broken rings. 30 PSI in 2 and 4. Could this engine have the wrong cam shaft in it as I am highly suspicious of the valve timing. Could the crankshaft gear have spun on the shaft breaking the woodriff key and messing up the valve timing? The timing marks are in the apparent correct alignment. Help please the hay is getting a little over ripe and I"m personally affronted by this engine. What am I missing?
