Have you checked the compression? Might be worth a look, then get to the timing? Is the cam dialled in properly? One tooth out can cause major problems.........
If I wasn't meant to go that fast, the pedal would only go half way!
I paid to have that all done, (not checking the compression)
These are the forged pistons I've got, they are supposed to have 10:1 compression
I looked up and 68cc from 64cc should at most only lower the compression by half a point, and factoring in the larger flow numbers of the new race heads and the bigger valves that should more than make up for it shouldn't it?
Ive gone from tyre shredding (even with apparently having 2 lobes wiped out on my cam) to got no power for pull away or even when you put your foot down.
I have the double timing chain on the front and I took a photo when they were dealing in the cam.

You can see the double timing chain and the tool he used to dial in the camshaft...
maybe , find the front pulley and put a bab of pint in the tdc mark ,find the pointer and dab of white paint , then fire it up ,with the vacuum advance pipe pulled off the distributor ,and put the timing light pickup on no1 ht lead , or the coil lead ,and see how the marks look at tickover and at half max rpm ,so around 3000 rpm .

your pistons will give you the below compression ratios depending on the CC of the heads - these numbers are direct from the TRW catalogue for your pistons.
58cc heads - 11.26
64cc heads - 10.5
68cc heads - 10.02
72cc heads - 9.59
76cc heads - 9.19
So you've went from a 68cc head which would give you a compression ratio of about 10.5 to a 74cc head which would give you a ratio of about 9.3

see diagram below to show what I mean - with the correct length pushrod the rocker should be in position 2 - too short and the end of the rocker sits at position 1, too long and the end of the rocker sits in position 3.

Yes I insisted on having the old parts back, the lifters didnt look crushed at all the way he described it on the phone but 2 of then did have a noticeable curve worn out of the top.
The cam shaft lobes were worn down on 2 of the lobes compare with the others.
The carb is a summit racing 650 4 barrel carb, I'm not sure about the manifold, I know it was a performance one...
