So I played with the truck a little this weekend and to my suprise it does start with 23* initial(no comments needed here). I unplugged the vacuum advance and its all in at 36*. Now come the questions.
Are my only options for limiting my mechanical to braze or stick something in the hole on/next to the center plate? Is there anything I can purchase for my HEI that would limit/ allow my to have only 10-12* mechanical?
Is it normal for my timing to bounce around slightly when check it with the light?
I didnt get to drive it without the vacuum advance plugged in to see if it shutters/bucks/bogs but will sometime this week. Just for reference when I built the motor I used a piston stop to find 0 on the dampner and have timing tape on it so its accurate. Thanks to everyone that posted on here. I will be back when I have more info.
