    That is [u][u]NOT</u></u> the correct way to time the engine, and can cause the symptom you describe.
    Get a manual, and do it right.
    Your problem will vanish.
    Set the point gap first (for every two degrees you change the dwell, you change the timing one degree.
    Then check the dwell with a meter.
    Then check the timing.
    Otherwise you are just chasing your tail.
    Basics....Get back to the basics.
    It is a simple machine, with simple requirements.
    Almost all Stude problems are simple, and have simple fixes.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to check for the vaccuum leaks. Jason set it at the timingmark that makes the engine runs the fastest.

        I thought each degree of dwell changed the timing two degrees. Have I had that backwards all these years? Research required.

          It was me that was backasswards...
          (or I could say 'that was a forum test')

          Do you know what DNA stands for?
          To most it means deoxyribonucleic acid.
          To me it stands for the National Dyslexic Association [8D]

            Gentlemen:

            It appears that the dwell was set to 20 instead of 28-32.
            As noted this also affected the timing. So I reset the dwell to 29 set timing and readjusted the idle.

            Car seems to run much better now. Will be taking it out for run today just to make sure.
            Thanks to all for the great advice.
