Okay, here goes........picked up a 350 from a guy who knows nothing about the motor, but it is stout. The motor was done about 1 year ago so I just put it in my car. First problem is the distributor, it has been worked over(springs,weights,etc) when I went to put it back in, the notch in the housing does not match with the tab on the cap.....when I do line it up the 3 wire hook up will not even reach the cap connection??
This is the distributor from the motor, I had it running in the donor car, never occured to me to make any notes as I have done many swaps before, but this one has me?
Plus.....after giving up on that one I threw another one in to get it runnung, at idle the timing light is telling me 55 degrees advance???
