You are wrong- period. If the starter drags/kicks back, an ignition interrupter switch is used. This has been discussed about a thousand times here and elsewhere. I'm not wasting another minute of time on you OR your useless advice.

And, if the engine won't idle below 1100-1200 RPM, there are tools available at some places that permit setting up the entire timing curve OUTSIDE of the engine compartment. Sun Instruments made thousands of them. They are now pretty readily available, in working condition, for under $1000. You might not get the stable running idle you're looking for, but you'd get the curve you describe. It is NOT impossible.

PS - I feel like many often forget about how simple it is to do a setup on a distributor machine. I rarely see them mentioned. I bought mine, have only used it once, but feel I have already received real value from my purchase. In the 50's and 60's, about every service station had one. There was a reason.
