Does change adv curve, engine run hotter?

I put in lighter springs so that the distributor advance comes in sooner. Now the car seems to run about 23* hotter. This is on a stock 66 396/360hp. Is this normal? Thanks.

Unless you reduced the advance it shouldn't make a difference in temp. I can see where there might be a slight reduction in temps when running below where total is all in but not an increase.
