Ok I drove my 65 chevelle to Reno for hot August nights and it ran decent but before I had swapped the hei distributor out as the shop I took it too banged on the distributor and it would die. So I changed it out to a msd distributor I had from my old motor. I set timing to 29 total timing no vacuum. I deciding to get on it and it pinged again. So I took it to another shop that I know they checkedthentiming it was 37 tt and as the mechanic friend went to loosen the the bolt for the hold down and the idle changed and we stopped he did not even loosen the bolt and the tt went to 27 degrees. Wtf this car is really Christine. I could really use some advice before I yank this motor to warranty this thing out. .
