Still have this issue...
Any thoughts on what the symptoms would be if the distributor were stabbed a tooth or 2 one way or the other?
Checked the dwell today and it was running at 34deg, adjusted points (dual point dist.) so that it's back to 33deg (gapped from 0.020 to 0.022 but the spec. is 0.020). Readjusted timing with a vacuum gauge and it wanted another 2deg of timing so initial is set at 32deg, yikes! It scares the crap out of me that all in timing is, well, outside the limits of my current toolset.
When out for a run and to be honest it felt like it was running better than it did the last time with no discernible ping, etc.
So, would really like some feedback from those who would know (in been-there-done-that) as to what symptoms I might see if the distributor was actually off a tooth or 2.
