Re: Timing Advance at Idle
So your not using vacuum advance? wasn't real clear on that.
I wouldn't go much more than 12-13 or so initial timing,you might get away with as much as 15 initial but may strain your starter a bit.
Add a couple degrees to your mechanical advance to get the 34 or 36 total you're looking for,keeping 12 or so initial, then see how it runs.
If you were using vacuum advance you could have 20-25 at idle with 36 total at full throttle.
