Ok, here's an update. I just changes the weights and springs out. Using the light springs I am at 10deg initial and another 12deg with the mechanical. I am around 42deg altogther at 3000rpm. Shouldn't I be getting more on the mechanical than 12deg? The instruction sheet showed the light springs giving close to 20deg advance. Any reason why I am getting 12deg? Could the center weight be causing it? It is slightly smaller than the previous one.
