Trouble with getting timing down
Posted by: bentley26 ()

Car was running poorly... After some investigation determined part of the problem was with the secondary carb (disassembled and cleaned), as well as with the distributor (weight springs were shot... Replaced with a rebuilt unit.)

Car idles much better now, and the "dead spot" in acceling has been addressed, but the car still wants to stall when putting it into gear. The balancer was replaced less than 500 miles ago... Could it be faulty? Any other thoughts? Been trying to time off of cyl #1. Thanks!

1 Do you have the VA hose off and plugged?

This is the vacuum tube (balance tube), yes?

Nope!!

This is the small / 1/8" black hose on the right side of the engine that is connected to:

1 The silver canister on the distributor / Vacuum Advance / VA

2 Connected to the right /passenger's side carb on the VERTICLE port. [ not the horizontal!]

You pull the hose off the VA.. .and plug the hose with a screw.


Then the idle must be below 800 rpm... then you adjust timing.

NOTE: if you have POINTS still... you must set the gap / Dwell before adjusting timing.

Hope this helps
