Initial timing

Anyone running a combo of say 36* at idle with 8* to 10* at idle via the can?

Currently undergoing a metal work to remove all rust, if I ever get there.

Cant decide on prostreet or cruiser with a 4 speed.

Re: Initial timing

I think Dave is trying to be EXTREMELY nice to you and your choices of ignition timing.

Sorry. I just dont see why trying to nice has anything to do with anything. I should of asked why would he be mean in a reply?

What I asked is not a choice.

I havent seen much on take and was wondering if someone might chime in.

Re: Initial timing

At the risk of starting a fecal storm, I would highly suggest you take the time to read Dave's older posts and there are others who are well versed in distributors and timing settings. Don't be offended, you have to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Re: Initial timing

Sorry, I just wanted to give you something to compare to. I didn’t want to write an encyclopedia. Not sure what was going on here. Do a search on IGN 101. Some good information in there and others.

Didn't even mention TF/FC on the street.

I read an article about Vizard doing something like that but with some kind of electronic timing control. Idled at 40 something & dropped back to 36 off idle. Probably read the story in HR or CC.
