After finally putting my motor back together. I can't seem to get it
timed properly. It does not want to idle at 10. Runs best at 15+. Any
idea what the heck is going on?

I was real careful when I timed the cams. Lined up TDC on the crank.
Lined up the cams using the alignment holes in the cam and cam
housing. I have adjustable gears, so I was able to get it perfect.

Any help would be appreciated. I sure missed not driving it.
I can tell you a few things to try..

Turn the engine to top dead center (zero on the timing mark) and verify that cam holes do line up under the cam covers ( turning the engine engine in the direction that it runs, clockwise from the front i believe)

you may be leaking air from the injector seals.. i used carb cleaner or brake cleaner and spray the liquid around the seals.. if engine revs up a little.. you gotta leak.

Did you drain and refill the hydrolic valve adjusters with fresh clean oil?

ARe you putting the jumper in when you check the timing?

Thats all I can think of right now.. maybe others can jump in and suggest something.. let us know what it was .. please.
