Thanks for the input. I got out my trusty old timing light and found that the static advance was around 16BTDC. I spun the engine up and saw that the mechanical advance was working. I don't know how a mechanic with an analyzer could have messed it up that much. Oh well, it is running much better. Thanks for your help. OBTW, I repurchased "How to Hotrod Small Block Chevy Engines". It is a real good book that I had back in the 80s. Maybe I will get the old gal a new dress and add a few ponies. Thanks again.
