Re: Vacuum Advance Question
Thanks for the input guys. I tried using the adjustment on the vacuum advance can, and that had no effect. I ended up making a small L-shaped vacuum advance stop bracket, and installed it in the distributor using one of the available screw holes that had been used to mount the electronics module. The bracket limits the travel of the base plate holding the magnetic pickup that is moved by the vacuum advance canister. After a little tinkering, I got it adjusted so that the vacuum advance adds 10-11 degrees. The car runs perfect now.
It might be the most elegant solution, but it works.
