Get the part number and download the mallory instructions .
Some of these have a fully adjustable advance system
that allows limiting it to 10deg travel.

26 at idle 36 @ max advance.... 10deg curve
do not use the lightest springs. too sloppy inconsistant.
you ant a smooth curve that peaks about 2800-3200 rpm
and is rock stable at idle., in and out of gear. (it must not drop off)

or simply lock it out.

If using a MSD 6A box the little red wire is the power switching wire.
This is the power switch on off wire that normally goes to the KEY "on"
12V on. Install the toggle switch inline on this switching wire.

Not the big RED wire.

Don;t be surprised at all if "locked out" is just right for this motor.

Because this motor was never set up correctly it probabily needs new fresh spark plugs.
