My engine builder scribed two lines on the harmonic balancer, one at 36* and one at 38*. My problem is that when I try to time the engine, I feel I should see the 36* mark at zero when I dial it in on my timing light. When reving the engine it seems to go beyond the 36* mark at zero on the balancer. Would that mean I'm getting too much mechanical advance?
By the way, great info in your post, thanks.
