I defiantly won't be buying any more glide converters. As far as the distributer goes my mallory one dosent allow the user to change the amount of advance.

Ya the distributor can be set up properly with the right advance curve.
You just have to know how to do it.

With the glide and stock converter, you'd be much better off with a smaller duration camshaft in your 283 .. 195 to 202@.050" .

Its very easy to over cam a small CID motor.

depends on exactly which model distributor you got.
Does it have the big GM HEI style cap with coil in it?

or what model # ?

download the instructions, online.

If its a "YL" style distributor that uses a "Key" fit guage in a slot to help adjust the amount of mech advance limit, here are the directions for this type of advance mechanism.

If yours is like this you can still set it up without the key but the key makes it easier. You can make up your own gauge to set the motion of the advance arms. See the directions. This is not the only style of advance system Mallory uses.

search my posts, its easy to do on the HEI style distributor using a machine screw on the rotor mounting plate to limit the motion of the mechanism.
find the picture. Its a 10 minute job.
