Its a Barry grant speed demon. It came with an application guide giving what size engines to use each carb with, what duration cams each carburetor is rated for, what transmission to use it for. And it gives the recommended initial timing setting. I havent even built the motor yet, im just kindof accumulating parts, and getting some advice. If it starts running hot, is that a sign of detonation? How can ya tell if youve got detonation problems. Ive tried and tried to tell, but every time i try to advance the timing real high on my truck, it just starts cutting out and missing around 3000 rpm, but i never can hear any pinging or anything. Sorry, im kinda turning this into an engine thread more than an electrical thread but thanks again for any advice.
