Well I got the points all adjusted but i'm still having a problem, and it's getting annoying. Between 2000 and 2500 rpm's usually the motor starts vibrating. It still accelerates ok but it shudders while doing so. I was advised to drop the timing down and run like that, then advance as necessary so right now I have it at tdc which is know is too far retarted. Would that be causing the problem? I'm going to kick it back up to 10 degrees and see if that makes it go away but should I be looking at anything else?

well i advanced the ignition and it's stil doing it, it almost feels like a spark plug is cutting out. I already checked the plugs and al the gaps are ok, would a ****ty wire do this as well?
