I've got a problem that is totally beating me. I built a 383 stroker last winter. It's got 10.5 to 1 compression ratio. I run 93 octane fuel. I installed a cheap Chinese HEI distributor in it. I verified that the timings marks are true top dead center. For some reason i cannot advance the initial timing past 0 or it spark knocks like crazy. Even if it's at 2* it'll knock. The only thing i think it could be is that cheap distributor but i figured I'd ask before i spend $500 I a new MSD system.
