I have tried everything to find the cause of the pinging with no success. The latest being the transmission modulator ( which was leaking) Changed that but it did not help the ping. Does idle smoother.
Sounds like we both have possibly the same problem, but maybe cam timing off a tooth in different directions.
Not going to be pulling mine apart again any time soon though. It is not my daily driver.

If you pull the end covers off and set the crank at "0" according to the marks on the FLYWHEEL, not the balancer, then look at the cam timing marks, One should be STRAIGHT UP and the other STRAIGHT DOWN. If one or the other looks not quite straight (and there are notches in the timing cover to align them to, both up and down, if I'm not mistaken) then I would strongly suspect that's your problem...
Hope this helps!

The 0 is for ignition timing. The 3 marks are for cam timing.

Very easy to check cam timing, takes less than an hour including beer/smoke/look at the girlies/check out the hot car/whatever else...
Failing ignition components will generally run WORSE at higher RPM due to cylinder pressures and loading which makes the ignition have to work harder. However, it's always a good idea to make sure your ignition components are in good shape, and make sure the ignition timing is set correctly.
