How about a little more detailed description? We can't read your mind, you know?

Tell us under what circumstances it DOES work, and under what it DOESN'T, etc., etc., etc... you're smart enough to figure out what kind of info to tell us - Be verbose!

Okay, thanks... did you re-install the decomp? If so, how certain are you that you got the decomp installed and timed properly - lack of decomp would certainly cause your symptoms.

i just did the top end on my raptor. thanks to the help of the guys here i finally got it right lol. i had minor starter lag when i did mine. check your valve adjustment good and the dec mechanism. i flipped my cam 180 degrees and adjusted my valves spot on and it took care of my problem. not sure if it was cam or valves, but i hope this helps some. P.S. i picked my feeler guages up at my local advanced auto store

yeah i just took the tensioner out, pulled the valve cover, took bolts out of the cam and spun it 180 degrees, and re-assembled everything. adjusted valves and all was well runs fine. before i did all this it had a weird noise and acted like i had tension when it tried to start.
