well After work today i went up to a area that is paved and there are very few houses.. i did a pass and the usuall it pulled nicely but the same as always.. so i got out got my trusty wrench and loosend my distributer.(got shooked by my coil) so i decided to turn it off and lossen it. fired it back up and adjusted my distributer untill it didnt idel as nice.. i then tightned it back up. put a slight load on it and didnt hear any pings. so i lined my car up and........
well this was the breakthrough..... i nailed it my slicks smoked for 20 feet i took it up to 5, hit 2nd ,tires broke loose again and then i stoped.. i then went back and hooked my vaccum advance up and tried the same thing well it just craped right out... so i disconnected it and pluged the vaccume port off and set my timing back to the way it was and drove home before the cops came..
basicly my question is what did i do?
did i advance the timing and that made that huge of a differnece?
why did it run better at higher rpms but ideal bad when i adjusted it? (can i compinsate for this)??
why did my vaccume advance mess everything up like it did?
what exactly does the vaccume advance do?
do i need to run the vaccume advance (the p.o. never did)
I think i have untaped power hiding in that circular thing with the black wires in the front of my engine.. and i would like to harness that power
I know i have posted several times on tuning my engine but i feel its not something you get told once and your a pro at.. i also am worried ill do something wrong and break something..
please enlighten me on this.....
drive it like its stolen!!!!
