    In response to grumpyvette

OK, thank you!

In my case where I am not 100% certain on all the components in this build, it is highly recommended to use the timing light to initially set timing, plot out the advance curve, and adjust accordingly.

Then go back and use the vacuum gauge and reference those settings in HG for a baseline for my engine, looking for telltale indications of other issues I would otherwise be unaware of...

In the future, I could probably setup and tune this motor with only a vacuum gauge and my reference chart for this motor. However it does take time and experience that I do not have yet with the vacuum gauge.

I see now why you kept steering me back to the timing light.

off to get or make a timing tape...


Words are a lot like toothpaste... Once its out of the tube,
there's no getting it back in...
