Re: Ignition Timing



Paul, that was my thought too. your centrifugal coming in to soon .  With my vacuum connected, and 12 inches of vacuum at idle.  I get 10 degree of initial--8 degree of vacuum advance--and 18 degree of centrifugal ( limited) for a total of 36 degree. I think if I block off the vacuum  and put in 18 degree of initial ( total 36 degree) it would  be more consistant for racing.  Is your cam responcible for your low vacumum readings at idle ?........................MO

Well I tried setting my initial timing at 15* and found something interesting.  It seems like I may have a very light set of springs in the distributor.  Because the timing comes in almost immediately with an increase in rpm.  And with the vacuum connected it goes over 40 with no way to get it back to a reasonable setting.

I've heard some differing info over the years on ignition timing.  I was talking to MO recently, and the guy who set up his distributor on his machine made the comment that setting "x" was all wrong for a manual transmission.  So I'm wondering if there is a difference in what you do for manual vs. automatic.  Right now I've got mine set at 32* BTDC all in at @ 2500.  This is 440 primarily street driven car with a bit of a cam.  I had been running with the vacuum advance plugged off.  I recently checked the timing because I was able to borrow a timing light.  I had a crappy one when I set it before.  It was retarded about 8* so more like 25* BTDC.  So I reset it and the result was that it seemed to run a little better but I had developed a slight bog from a stop.  So I'm wondering where I should go from here?   Should I hook up the vacuum advance and reset the total advance?  BTW it didn't seem to make any difference on my issue with running hot in town
