Default Re: Going to HEI distributor and screwing up (a lot?)

Don't be afraid to advance the timing to 10 degrees, I've experienced and so have many others that there can be lost power with so little initial. Try it at 8 and if it has good power then leave it, but if you notice it's sluggish or pulls hills poorly try advancing a little more. Glad it's running! Drive the wheels off it!
