IT’S ALIVE!!!!

it didn’t take much at all to get started. i broke in the cam and done some tuning most of the day. i took it on two drives in the country totaling 18 miles and never got over 190 degrees in 95 degree weather. i have ran into a timing issue. i have it set at 10 degrees with the vacuum advanced unhooked with no problem but when you hook up the advance it goes to 30 degrees. the book said it should only go to 13 with a 17 inch vacuum. (if i am reading it right)
i have right at 17 inch vacuum at idle. i have not took the cap off yet but don’t know if the advance is adjustable. the threads were real week where the line screws into the advancer so i hate to unhook it to many times. i have a dead spot in the pedal but hope the vacuum advancer issue is the reason for it. also need to make some more TV rod adjustments. looks like i will have it ready for the nice fall weather.
