*****Sure, everyone's a comedian But my WRX is more of a rallycar than your GT is a racecar at the moment, right? And I finished all the cagework but my seat mount on the ITB car this weekend. So nyaaa....
Does the mechanical advance of the 69-70 and the 71-74 distributors have the same curve up to 32 degress?
*****No, the automatics all came in sooner, and there are definitely different springs in the early vs/ late distributors.
Also, could you give a quick description of your adjustable total mechanical advance mod?
*****No. Can I ever give a 'quick' description of anything? Later model distributors are easy, just bend the tabs limiting the distance the weights fly out. Early ones are more involved, but IMO this is worth it. I make them adjustable externally, but this cannot be described in this forum, photos would certainly be necessary to get the idea across. Alas, I have no photos to show, the only ones I have are 35 mm prints and I have no scanner.
Thanks is advance
It shouldn't matter which side the nut is on. The nut isn't really adjusting the weight but rather how much the weights and rotor are allowed to move. Do you have a distributor that is out of the car? If yes, try moving the piece the rotor sits on to full advance. You'll notice that it moves until it hits one of the spring mount pins. I have installed the nut and screw such that the screw hits the pin BEFORE it would have normally. Now you can adjust the screw to determine exactly how much it is allowed to move. This will only allow you to set the amount of maximum advance. It will not affect how quickly the advance comes in.calvin said:Travis,
Does it matter what side you attached the nut to? Then if I am following what you di dyou can adjust the wieght by screwing the bolt in further or less as needed correct? and you plates are rivered together so they don't move correct?
