Hey all,

Now down to business, I have a timing mark jumping all over the place there doesnt seem to be a place where this critter will stop the fluctuation,(spelling optional) HALP!!!!

when timing time it at 3000 rpms. Is your distributer locked. If not I would. This sets your timing so it will not fluctuate on you. also time it between 34-36 for stock rod and long rod migh like a little more maybe 38 but I would not go any more than that. Well hope this helps. BObby

I TIMED AT 3 GRAND,VAC ADVANCED DIST ,LOCKED DOWN IN THE NEUTRAL POSITION.LONG RODS AND THE MARK HAS BEEN MOVED DUE TO THE HEAD WORK. I BOUGHT THE CAR COMPLETE BUT IT HAS NEVER RAN UP TO WHAT IS IN IT.IT IS ALSO ADVANCED FOUR DEGREES AT THE CAM,I HAVE BEEN MOVING IT A BIT AT A TIME HOPING TO FIND THE SWEET SPOT.

Thanx guys, it is working great now.I went to 3 grand and it came out perrrrrrrfect,now all I need is enough cash to run it for a night.
Funny thing my dad used to say, racing was a sport for the poor that the rich watched,now the other way round.
By the time I get there ready to race in the pits. It costs about 125.00 just for gas oil and admit.
Not sure if Im so happy to be back anymore.

Counting the cost,Hop
