Re: Starting Issue
What is your total timing set to? Check the total timing by looking at the timing light while you raise the engine rpm slowly until the advance stops climbing. You will need a degree'ed balancer or a timing tape on the balancer. Total should be less than 36 degrees for most all engines and you may get by with 28-32 degrees. The lower the timing, the easier it is to crank. The higher the timing, the more responsive it will be; until detonation, poor performance, and hard starts occur.
