Well I reset the distributor again set it to 8 on the crank kept trying to get it running, no go, I took it out to around 16-18 BTC got it running. Then backed the idle screws out, wayyyyy out. It's iding and will run but stumbles and shakes on accel. Timing still outta wack? No more backfiring. Any ideas why this thing runs at such a high timing advance? The timing chain off?? Just pulling stuff outta my rear here. Also I read that the a/f ration should be reading around 13 or so at idle I could only get mine upto 7-8. Any ideas
