    In response to Mr. Sinister

  • Quote:
After 30-40 years of controlling vacuum advance with full manifold vacuum, along came emissions requirements, years before catalytic converter technology had been developed, and all manner of crude band-aid systems were developed to try and reduce hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen in the exhaust stream. One of these band-aids was "ported spark",


Who ever wrote that never worked on older vehicles.many,probably almost all used ported vacuum,cars and trucks.
But the full vacuum does work nice on a hi performance street engine.
