allright heres what i did, I adusted the timing a bit. its been set retarded (turned clockwise) for the longest time. I set it so it idles smooth. runs good like that. but has spark knock like crazy! it will only stop knocking when its advanced like that, and it runs rough cuz its advanced to far. this block in a plane jane block, I rigged it up myself with the simple wiring and all that, no sensors or computers on this engine. btw, I dont have a timing lite I just have to do it by ear. I got about 100 spare distributors maybe I'll just change them around.
