Correct timing for this motor is locked out timing. 36deg full time all the time.
If you are only using the start retard function it should go to full timing any time it is above 500-600rpm.
and stay there. It must not drop off when in gear.
Spark plugs are the wrong type reach for the 462 head. The 462 head uses a 3/8" reach plug.
You have the R45TS .460" reach with a taper seat. Wrong plug. And just a hair too hot.
Ok, easy enough to change the timing to the 5-600 rpm. 3/8" reach, should they be tapper seat also? no wonder I closed up 4 of them before I indexed them. lol AC 44 ts or autolite 29's be ok?
