As i said, the timing needed a LITTLE adjustment.......

Got me a new timing light and put it to work for the first time today.. engine was firing at 6 degrees AFTER top dead center. Dont know how I screwed it up that much when dropping the distributor in but I got her advanced to a true 12 degreed BTDC at idle. Took it out and got on it.. All my problems are solved. No more long cranking to start up.. one crank and vroommmm.

I guess this vouches for the importance of finding true tdc before dropping the distributor in. I had the heads off when I (thought I hit tdc), but i was all out of whack. 18 degrees out of whack.
