Most of the time I try to start out with the two blue springs and the shortest bushing, black isn't it? But if you're racing it and you're not going to lock it out I would put in the skinny plain springs.

The lighter springs did help a lot initial timing is at 12 and advance is around 36. Starting it is better to but still seems kind of slow?
will 110 octane be sufficient for this set up or do in need to buy higher octane ? Thanks

He's saying look for indications of detonation, or the forwarning of such. Illuminated 10x magnifier, look for black specs that look like pepper on the ceramic insulator. If there, need better octane and or less timing.

10-4 I was just wondering if Rick had a better plug in mind . Thanks

I am sure there will be some detonation signs as the timing was way off to start with ! That be my fault Embarassed

The safe timing TNT tune is there... in the ballpark, run her like you stole her, and don't shy away from adjustments, bring some plugs and pay attention to everything...JMO but every time I adjust the timing I would look at the carb together they will rock.

Agree.  Its a package.  Add fuel, add timing.  Decrease fuel, decrease timing.  One without the other, on a good day the car slows down; on a bad day it costs an engine.

It's hard to believe what just 2* one way or the other sometimes means in ET/Hp. Smile

Through some new ones in, do a WOT run.  Those plugs a fat fuel contaminated.

Yeah that's what I was my thoughts . Thanks for the help !

One more question this thing is still hard to start I have a MSD 6AL box and a new high torque starter that is
For a 95 460 truck. New battery good ground and correct size battery cables . The thing sounds like an old chubby with the timing to advanced. Thanks
