383 ignition timing recommendations?
Just trying to optimize the timing on my 383... currently running 12* BTDC base timing (vac. disconnected) and 36* BTDC total mechanical. Tried advancing a few degrees and couldn't hear any spark knock, but performance didn't feel improved. Could I make more power with less than 36* BTDC total? My testing technique isn't very scientific... nail it in 1st and 2nd gears and see if/how much tire spin I get between adjustments!
