First Time My 65 to 100MPH

Oh and it felt Good! Felt solid on the road even with stocker 13" wheels and tires. Some residual oil on cylinders etc was certainly burning off.
A touch of pinging in 3rd at 3/4 throttle but non in 4th.
Good day...Cheers

Matt,

I pulled and plugged my vac advance and has made a definite difference.
Haven't even touched timing yet so a bit more sorting but very close to where it should be. Thanks

Buy a 5 gallon pail of VP fuel C12 and start mixing in your fuel. 2 quarts at a full tank of gas. That stops pinging and makes 100 miles per hour come quicker. I do this in every tank
