i've got the #1 piston at TDC, the valves are closed, the rotor is pointing to the #1 position on the cap. when i put the timing light to it sit at about 4 deg. and runs ok at an idle. then i speed up to 2,000 or so an the timing mark only goes to 10deg? last year i set the total to 32 deg with no problem at all .
the weight are free and when i disconnect the vacuum we stall. ahhhhh should the vacuum be disconnected for the total setting? seemed like it should be hooked up to get all possible advance. yes, no, maybe. big time frustration!!!
thanks for any insight. john
