If you have no change when the vacuum advance is disconnected, you're either using ported vacuum or the vacuum advance unit is bad or the advance plate is hanging up. Try hooking it up to a vacuum port that has vacuum at idle (manifold vacuum).
Thank you, i have Edelbrock performer alu heads on so i believe it's better a little more advanced, are 36* ok? Because the total timing with vacuum plugged in is way more of that, i think was close to 45*.
What a 45* or too much total advance would cause to the engine?
