Re: Distributor w/o vacuum advance problem.
A DVM or analog voltmeter is used to measure and an assistant at the ignition switch with a disabled ignition so the engine does not start. Do not rely on a dash gauge.
Just hook up meter across battery posts and crank for 10-15 seconds with the throttle wide open. If at any time the battery voltage goes below 9.5 volts, then consider the battery haqving served its useful life.
If a battery checker is used, the type with the resistor and big clamps to hook to the posts, then press the button on the meter for 15 seconds. If its in the red zone, below 9 volts, consider the attery having served a useful life.
Thank you for the complements. I've always wanted to run Super Stock, but, billfold is really thin to support the many parts needed to match just to get a good set of matched items. Stock is alittle more lenient, but, not by much.
Your 11.71 on 12.20 index is respectable. Nothing to laugh at, theat's for sure. Always looking to lose a pound or ten, or another hp or 100.
