Power valve sizing is based on engine vacuum correct? And if the valve comes on too early I'll be pumping too much fuel at the wrong time leading to an overly rich condition correct?
Concerning timing the thing won't start or run at all too far outside of 14 degrees initial. Also it's running so rich that I can't adjust the timing without the thing loading up and dying, and 22 to 26 degree's advance at idle? That seems very high for a ford, if you don't mind my asking why is 14 degrees initial not enough? If I had 22 to 26 advance at idle that would put me in the 40's with the mechanical advance...
Good pics thanks!
Set the both front & rear blades evenly so the transfer slot appear like a small square.
Then once you get running and you adjust idle speed always adjust both blades the same amount of turns.
You may have caused a little panic and confusion for F-bird'88 as the cam specs you posted is your advertised duration.
So kindly post you .050" duration specs?
