does it have a bajillion miles on the engine....am suspecting a worn timing chain, causing retardation of the valve action~ get a thumb on that and check the presser foot for movement...should still have a little adjustment left~

simple vacuum leak may cause this...PCV valve?

the motor has 170000 miles
