Initial timing

Unread postby jjones9620 » Sat Nov 18, 2017 7:06 am

I have a question for the group. I have about 50 miles on my engine now. Dechipas has been writing tunes for me and we are on step 3. I have not heard from Deciphas for a few days so until I hear from him my question is about initial timing. I have it set to 10 btdc as instructed but the car does not pull as hard as I think it should. Can I bump up the initial timing with the spout disconnected and see if that helps or should all the timing be done through tunepro rt? 347 stoker with tfs top end kit.

Never, ever adjust the timing by turning the distributor. The car probably doesn't pull as hard as you think it should because your tune isn't finished.

I found the problem, the distributor was loose and the timing backed itself off. I reset it and now it is much much better.
