    They are everywhere, even in the cities and suburbs. I see them weekly, in our streets and even in the alleyways behind our houses. Mostly in the evenings and at night.

    However, they aren't as bad as the feral hogs that are breeding exponentially here. Even in the suburbs, they are causing problems. And, feral hogs are not afraid of people (most coyotes are - unless they are rabid).

    For an interesting perspective, google Helicopter Hog Hunting (don't if you are squeamish).

    Yes Feral hogs are REALLY bad news. Luckily we don't have any near me but we have had them over in upstate new York. I remember seeing on the news they totally devastated a couple of farms.

    Right On Sid,,,

    we have Feral hogs here too.
    No not bikers up riding our cool road.
    Bad Pigs,,, mean, will Kill you.
    The only way I feel safe when they come to graze,, is with slugs in a shotgun.
    If you shoot piglet ,,,?? The mommas will attack.

    Coyotes are Very adaptable to city life. Shame,,, then they cease to be, Truly coyotes.

    Intake Cams installed.
    Now, Valve Covers sealed on one side, waiting on 7 more shims.. My exhaust valves are Tight,,,, very tight.
    I have used all the thin shims in my Volvo kit.
    Called Interntional Auto Parts,, a Fiat Supplier,, to get the thin,, 2.95 and 3.00 mm shims not in the Volvo Kit, at less then $ 3.00 each,,, I should have called them first.
    Baby Steps... For This, needs to be right.
    Hoo Raa.

    Engine looking terrific, what with the vernier cam pulleys and all.
    What's your cam timing set too?
    Regards Bell

    Bell,

    A difficult question,, I will try to answere.

    Factory Cam setting for the California Smog Check.
    But, My car is a Euro 308,, with EURO Exhaust Cam.
    Factory Ferrari Euro Cam timing is a little different then a USA spec. car.

    Before I start to play with cam advance, I think I need to address The Very Poor flowing Ferrari intake system, to enable the cam to be advanced more,, and,, next, get new cam, with more duration.

    Whew,
    Edwardo

    Foreward 308 Ferrari motor Bank,,,,, Celinders 5,6,7,8 All ready to go.
    Spark Plugs, a "cool set," (NGK BP7ES) are installed,,, along with 3 cc of Two Stroke oil, I rotated the motor after this,,,.
    but, I'll pull the Sparkplugs in order to spin the engine with the Main oil pressure. For a good flush.

    My Break in oil is going to be a crappy, dinosaurs based oil, it be Castrol GTX 10 w40.
    Then,,,,
    ,

    After break in, I'll switch to a good synthetic oil, probably after 500 hours or so.
    :)
