LOOK INSIDE THE DISTRIBUTOR---SEE IF THE MECHANICAL ADVANCE WEIGHTS ARE STILL SPRUNG INWARD (SPRINGS AIN'T BROKE)

IF YOU NOTICED THE TIMING WAS OFF, AND YOU MAY HAVE RESET IT, NOW YOUR TIMING IS RIGHT AT IDLE. BUT THERE IS NO MECHANICAL ADVANCE AS YOU THROTTLE UP (THE WEIGHTS ARE PERMANENTLY SLUNG OUTWARD)

WHAT DID YOU MEAN BY "CHANGED THE VACUUM ADVANCE"?

KEEP US INFORMED
