Has anyone spoken with Dan about his exact process?
I rebuilt my HiPo distributor myself and didn't see the need to have it sent out but I'm open to the idea. I'm using Pertronix Ignitor III with matching low resistance coil. When I rebuilt my dist I had a machine shop push on the gear and install the shear pin at the correct location, I verified the shaft didn't have any radial play, installed 13L weights, and lower tension springs, and tuned it in the car. For tuning, I set the initial timing to max vacuum/idle and then tracked when total timing came in by (2800 rpm) and what total timing was (38 deg). Additionally, I checked dwell to verify it was steady and then drove the car to ensure there weren't flat spots across the RPM range and that A/F ratios were slightly rich.
What additional benefit would I gain, with a HiPo distributor, by sending it to Dan?
