Re: Ignition Timing



Heartland FBBO guys,   I am wanting some time slips from I-29 dragway  this Fall.  Looks like a Friday night would have to be it.  I am shooting for Sept. 28.----  Oct.13-20-27 is a possibility.  I could use an assistant???  Rich, would you like to row  a 4 speed for old times sake? ............8-).......................MO

I suppose the low vacuum at idle is because of the cam.  I've got the idle set a little low at @ 850 rpm.  I could bump it up a little to see if that makes a difference.  I'm reading the vacuum from the timed vacuum port.  The guy I bought it from was making it a bracket racer so it wouldn't surprise me if he put in some light springs.

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
