    I am actually really glad you mentioned the timing because it probably would have been overlooked for the first initial test runs. Maybe I can lock a pin or something to pre-advance it so the advance range is narrowed, and set the initial and final advance after that. I wonder if they ever made different springs that fit these distributors...

    Pay attention to that distributor and its timing. I "melted" a motor or two before figuring that out!

    For distributor springs, you will note that the OEM distributor has a light one and a heavy one. If you can't find lighter ones, just use two of the light ones--the ones with thinner wire.

    We tig welded the slots and filed. I suppose if you can take the shaft apart, clean the slot, you can epoxy and file for the same effect. Not sure if I would trust the epoxy for long, however.

    Maybe...but note ad says: **Distributor must be locked out with no internal advance.**

    Yeah I would put one of my spare EFI distributors on probably, for a fixed trigger.

    I am only running that mechanical advance distributor now because I put a stock style 2 barrel carb on there for now.

    That's a possible solution.
