This is a brand new dampner, so I hope it's not degraded already.
Doing some research, I seen that dampners did change 3 times throughout the years, where the marks have moved from the 2 o'clock position to 12 and then back or so. Looks as if it were a 12 o'clock, that would throw the timing into the 60s at idle with the 2 o'clock pointer, which is where I'm at.

So what I'm going to do, it set to TDC, then remark the dampner with paint or whatever and go from there. I don't get how when I set it to TDC with both the piston and dampner, put the dizzy in, that it was lined up right with the marks. But I'll check it all out when i get back in town.

I´ve been through that too, bought a new damper, it was a two-o-clock version.
My setup at the time was a twelve-o-clock...........
In the end I remarked it like you are planning to do.

Why can't everything just work together like it should and be universal! Gah. Sounds like I will do that next week for sure then.

Ok just to update here. The dampner is the correct one. I didn't realize that such small changes on the dizzy make such a huge change on the timing. I finally got her to about 14btdc. Idles very rough and tries to die.

I pulled a plug and it was just coated in fuel and running way to rich. So I'm done with this Demon for now. I got an Edelbrach laying around, so going to install that and see if it runs any better. Have a SS fitting for it coming in so have to wait til tomorrow assuming it comes in by then. Hopefully this will work. Also have a tach coming in so I can see exactly where she's idling at.

So your going to chuck the Demon without even finding out what one you have and posting it here like we asked? Good luck.

Pretty much. I never got around to pulling it off to check the model, and plus the accelerator arm leaks when I hit the gas now. It drips down the intake mani, so obviously that's not good. If this Edelbrach makes everything better, I'll get the Demon checked out to stop the leak and then come back and try to get it tuned on it. Just running really short on time and need her on the road literally by this weekend.
