help us out here, You have put a timing light on it to be SURE it's not advancing?

You stated it "acts"...like it's not advancing..... If you have NOT put a light on the thing....do that now and get back to us.....

the amount of advance would not be in the computer but it would be in the prom which is the chip that clips INTO the computer.

Ther is a ignition control module and vacum advance control .If you haven't already replaced them it would problably be a good area to check out .I have an 89 service manual I'll see what it has in there about timing tomarrow.Not all reman electronics are good out of the box either
