I adjusted the best I could but no matter what I do there is too much play in the plastic piece. After opening the throttle it will always return to the off pole even when turned all the way out.

Also, I am not sure if it is relevant but my plugs are longer than the standard so I am wondering if somewhere along the line there was an adjustment to add HP and that would explain the higher fuel p ...

Thanks for the quick clear feedback!

Just to be clear the PO swapped my injectors so they are no longer needles but have three holes. These have worked well for quite a while so I do not suspect th ...

Thanks for all the help!

Alright, so I drilled a 2mm hole in a 1/2" aluminum rod and installed it. This fits perfectly and has removed the vacuum leak. As you suspected my fuel pressure was to ...

Is there a video of someone adjusting ...

I went ahead and bit the bullet on this distributer, I thought I would eventually want to go electric ignition anyway, and I cannot express just how great it is.

I am thinking about getting this to stop the searching and weird timing issues I have. Do you think I'm just throwing away $500 or saving myself the headache of messing with the all the time?

Did you end up just replacing the distributor or was it possible to repair?

I actually have another FI distributor that was given to me from a friend that did a carb swap. But the wire to the coil ...

I wonder if my dwell meter is off. I just checked with feeler gauges and it was too tight. I'll run some moly greasy everywhere I can and see how it holds.

Thanks!

I can't thank Mr. Duncan enough. This ended up being a few issues and it certainly didn't hurt to fix those vacuum leaks and learn how to set timing and dwell.

However, the main issue was that one ...
