36 to 38 degrees might even try more on that low a compression engine they seem to like more advance than a high compression motor. as for the rods do you have any information on them, saying what grade of steel there made of? Ive never used them so I cant comment on that one.....Towman

IVE BUILT 2 MOTORS WITH PROWLER RODS, THEY LOOK REALLY NICE ARE DECENT ON SIZE/WT.

THEY LOOK BETTER THAN MORE EXPENSIVE SCAT RODS.

Towmandan, I'm running a simular motor. Timed it by ear (ha) before I got a timing light. Motor pulled great but ran 230 deg. on track. Cked timing and was around 41 adv., put it on 36 (per post in forum)and car barely spins tires in dirt from dead stop. Do ya think I can go higher and not hur anything? Thanks, Race

raceinmud, at 41 and 36 degrees, at what rpm does the full timing advance come in? You
might play around with springs and weights
on the distributor. i'd try and run lower than 39 myself.

Avila, total at 2500 or so. Was you thinking of lighter springs? Thanks, Race

You want your total advance and your torque curve to kinda work together say for instance your engine power range starts at 3000 you want you to be fully advanced by then I usually stay between 36 and 38 myself.....Towman
