The size of master cylinder needed is directly related to the amount of fluid needing to be moved to push out your calipers/wheel cylinders.

So Porsche put the size they needed to push out their ca ...

That is curious. Assuming you got the correct numbers off the distributor (which I believe you did because it matches both VW and Bosch’s numbers) the centrifugal advance is not working.

That looks like a SVDA to me, typically they are timed at 7.5 BTDC.

However I have no way of knowing if that’s an original Bosch unit, and the SVDA clones sold can be hit or miss. If you can, find ...

What distributor are you running? The distributor is what determines what your timing should be.

There should be numbers/letters stamped on the distributor body. Or at least snap a picture of it in ...

How do you know it was overheated?

Start with a full tune up:
Adjust valves
Dwell and timing
Adjust the carb

After that I would look at the plugs and check compression.

Get a magnet, see if it sticks to the middle part of the pushrods. If so, you have steel pushrods that need to be set to a “loose” 0. If not you have stock aluminum pushrods and just do as suggested a ...
