Got my coolant leak under control and am now trying to tackle my "engine run-on or dieseling" problem. I am 99.9% positive that it is timing related. When I go to start her after a few days or a week, it is really tough. I even experience mild back firing when trying to crank her over. Sometimes I can get her to crank over but it idles really rough for a few minutes and then craps out. Usually I can get her going though giving it enough gas and holding down the pedal for a few minutes to get the idle up, then once I drive it for 5 - 10 minutes she's perfect. Well except for when I shut her down and it does the dieseling thing.
So I guess my question is, do you guys think its timing related? If so, where do I start? I am learning how to do these things one engine component at at time so if you can school me on how to fix timing (if that is what it is wrong) that would be great.
In the meantime, I took some pictures of things that I am not quite sure of what they are. The arrows point to those things and if someone could chime in and educate me that would be great:
This is on the rear of the Alternator. It looks burnt, what is it???
Thanks for all your help as always!!!
