Re: Weak Vacuum & Pulse in Idle
Hey, 'steptoe", I DO DISTRIBUTORS FOR A LIVING, YOU DON'T, and, I wrote quite a lot of the tech on distributor curves, emissions vs non-emissions, so, belt up and stay quiet.
Stop confusing people with totally inaccurate "info" that is not fact, not the way it works, and not sensible.
And, Mr. Wit and Knowledge, most people are NOT aware that the number on the stock vacuum advance is for a unit that has a rubber stop bush over the pull pin, which DOES NOT COME WITH A REPLACEMENT UNIT. Why didn't you tell that to everyone, Mr. Ignition? BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO CLUE.
What I have done with the physical stops, is to make them from metals, so they cannot rot, fall off, be forgotten, they are there, working just like the rubber stop GM use/uses from the get-go, and will not fail. You know so much, why didn't YOU come up with any of that, nor the fixes, nor, the stops??? BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO CLUE.
And, YES, pre-emissions engines do like between 20 and 24 degrees IDLE timing, but, they don't like INITIAL timing set that high, hard to start, so, the vacuum advance supplements the difference from INITIAL to IDLE timing. Full manifold vacuum supplemented added timing degrees are the way to get to the optimum IDLE timing, added to the INITIAL, AFTER the engine starts. THAT'S THE WAY IT WORKS, MR. WONDERFUL.
Now, go browbeat someone else, I know what I am doing, and what I recommend, works, go force your BS on someone else that also has no clue.
Enough is enough, stop your bogus "info".
A disclaimer, NOBODY, NOT ME, NOBODY is forcing anyone to do it my way, steptoe's way, any way, not even the correct way, do it any way you want, but, don't flame me for knowing how to do it right, and posting same, I am not wrong, and steadfastly refuse to post incorrect info, EVER.
Moderators, I, and no-one else here needs this to go on, and I am all for posting what works, some here don't feel that way, and cause me to have to defend my every post, and, I am fed up with it, do something positive, please, NOBODY needs any of this stuff going on, from anyone, including me. When called an Outright LIAR< I WILL DEFEND MYSELF.......FAIRLY WARNED. iT SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY. DO SOMETHING.
