Cold knock,
I'll try the heaviest springs and lightest weights I have. I can always lighten the weights if I need to. How many total degrees should I be getting from mechanical advance? How does this affect performance/engine life etc.

The distributor is a HEI-Accell (have tried 3 different sets of springs & weights)
