New track rules state timing must be set at
32 degrees at 4000 rpms. I'm use to running
a full advance of 36 degrees by 2600 rpm - curved my dist that way.

I'm looking for a distributor curve kit that
would give me 32dg at 4000 and move to 36dg
thereafter. Any ideas on curve kits to achieve that?

thats a new one to me. Havent heard of any rules requiring timing before. If you didnt want to change anything i would just get an adjustable timing pointer then set it so that it was off by 4 degrees. That way when they check it in tech it will read 32 even though you have it set to 36. As long as you rememebered it was off by 4 and set the timing accordingly you wouldnt have a problem.

buy one of the wraparound timing tapes and install it 4 degrees off. Just remember 4 degrees retarded, not 4 degrees advanced. BIGG C
