What are signs the valves need adjustment? Or when should it be done for maintenance? I wish I would have done them when I had the intake off for resealing.

Verifying valve adjustment can be done each time you de-carbon the heads, which is each 250 to 500 hours depending on what gas you use...

Mike double check your point gap adjustment. Should be .016. One of mine was doing this and it had less then 50 hours on complete overhaul. I checked compression and it was ok. I checked points and gap had closed down. I opened back up to .016 and it runs great cold or hot.
