Just to be sure- the gap is only at WOT, not at rest (idle), right?

Still a bit concerned with having 24 degrees initial, but there is zero pinging.
I'm guessing the cam is fairly 'healthy'. If that's the case, absolutely nothing wrong or unusual about the amount of initial timing.

BTW, good job on the carb tuning as well as the timing. A LOT of guys stumble (npi) on this.
