Is there anything I should be worried about when I recurve the mechanical advance? Will it cause a need for better gas? Is this a simple operation that will net me a better running cruiser/ daily driven car. The engine is a stock 350 non smog, 9-1 compression in great mechanical condition with everything stock.
Also has anyone used a harmonic dampener cover that bolts on to the inner ring of the damper? I provides engraved timing marks and doesnt allow the timing to be screwed up if the outer ring slips. Does this cause any problems with the dampener fitting?
Im going to be going some work on the 350, heat crossover clean up, intake gaskets, water pump gaskets, timing chain and gears, points, maybe an advance recurve.
Any advice to make this go easier is wonderful, I have done chain and gears before along with the intake but maybe there are some secrets???
