DS distributors offer too much vacuum advance for use in a non EGR application.
Vacuum advance hooked to ported or manifold vacuum source?
How far is the new pick up coil from the reluctor teeth? Does it move farther away as the vacuum advances?
used 2b RHP
Wow all stuff I have to look at closer, above my pay grade right now but I'll check it out.
If I recall correctly my initial timing is set at 12 BTDC right now. Or very close to this.
This has been an issue since March and I putzed with it a few months ago and just kind of set it on the back burner.
I didn't realize the pickup coil could move, it appeared it only installed one way, where the holes lined up at and was stationary.
I think I understand what you're saying though.
If I pull vacuum on the advance I should see if it moves any with the cap off correct? I know I saw the advance moving, when I tested the vacuum on it but never thought to watch the coil.
Don't have a tach so I haven't a clue what the RPM is at when all in. Guess it's a good time to get one..
I'll have to look at it again to see what the total timing is I don't recall now especially since I just disconnected the advance.
It's going to be a minute before I get into it again though, I have a lot going on currently and was hoping for a post to get me looking in a better direction.
So thank you, I'll update this as soon as I can.
oh ported connection
