odd vibration

Thanks liva65wagon. Well I dont use any oil or anything and 120 does seem a bit lower than the books are calling for and it does idle a bit rougher than I would like even when I have played with the timing. It sounds pretty smooth when going down the road though. Ya got me wondering though. Do ya really think it would even run without back firing and stuff if one of the gears was a tooth off ? I wonder if I will be able to tell without tearing the covers off of the timing chain..........HMMMM........sounds easier than pulling the transmission and running the engine like the transmission shop wants to do
NOW YA GOT ME PONDERING THIS ONE. I get awful gas millage too even with a brand new carb on it
