I have been driving to break in the motor. I have 100 miles so far and it runs great. Timing is set to 5* Btdc to be safe. I put on new Radials and kept the old Bias ply B78-13’s (they still look new but their age worries me for long distance driving). They were not the correct size and 30 years old. The new Radials are the only ones I can find that are the correct size (185/80-13 equal to 7.00-13) and the correct white wall. They are Maxxis MA-1: http://shop.maxxis.com/c/ma-1-grand-touring-tire?pkey=ce24dc664ee95d21541b9e8695075c01&ckey=12015.1071173.0.0.0
