Engine Shakin
« on: September 12 2012, 08:07:24 AM »
I notice my new engine shakes more than the stock one. I have a factory short block with a 212/212 roller and ported heads. My Scanmaster #'s at hot idle are TPS-.42/ IAC-23/ BL-125 and oil pressure is 37. It seems to idle fairly steady but it shakes in the mounts more than the original motor. New stock motor mounts (had them with the old engine) Is this because the cam is bigger??

Would be my first thought.....if the vacuum is lower, but pretty steady, that would make sense.

You can always try pulling injector connectors, one at a time, to see if you find a cylinder that is not affected much

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Improper valve lash with news cams and head work will do it.  I assume you check for proper push rod length?  But I would start simple like Steve suggested.  Plug, ign wire, vacuum leak, cam sensor 180* out
