Just as F-Bird said, engines will start with 22 degrees without problems. I have mine set at 34 degrees (locked) and have no issues at all. Now, if the advance in a distributor does not start to move until 1200 RPM, why would it matter to have the engine idle at 'a must' 650-700? Would make sense that it would be fine at 1000 as well since the advance will not start until 1200. Right?
