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.
I guess I don't understand 10 initial plus 12 in the mechanical mechanism is 22, how are you getting 42?? Leave the vacuum advance out of the picture right now.
