  • Timing Question V-8

    The 'ing-zone' on the timing marks. Is this entire zone ok to set timing to( as long as it does not knock) or just at the start of the zone.

    Yes, it's OK. Hell, Ted will crank the timing WAY up for performance![}] Of course, your results may vary.[:I]

    Miscreant at large.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      Thanks, I just had a fear of too high and valves burning or whatever. Pulled the distributor put Acell electric points in, no spark, could not find the problem and converted back to convential pionts. Found the vacuum advance frozen when the distributor was pull, so I replaced vacuum advance. Car seems to run great. It always has!

        what kind of dist.? if it is a prestolite you ought to check the centrifugal advance while you're in there, they're usually bad and ready to throw a weight and ruin your day.
