soldave Posted December 18, 2021 Report Share Posted December 18, 2021 (edited) I'll try to be as brief as I can here as I just want to confirm my thinking. When timing the car (25 degrees @3,500-4,000rpm) that,s what you're looking for on the timing light, right? I can set it at about that but my distributor adjustment is at its limit. Just wanted to check as someone has said that I should be doing 25 degrees plus the 7 degrees of static/idle retard, so giving me 32 degrees total. Only way I can seem to get at 3,500rpm is by setting the idle timing to around 13-14 degrees which seems way too high. I think the advice is wrong but I just wanted a sense check from you knowledgeable people though as the 25 degrees was at the limit of distributor adjustment (all timing marks lining up). Many thanks in advance. Edited December 18, 2021 by soldave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
