I'm guessing they have mechanical advance as well as vacuum advance? If not then what do you recommend? I'm wanting to replace the distributor, it's a combination of 3 different distributors I put tog ...

My valve clearance opens up past .020 after the engine warms up. I just finished a cold, overnight sit adjustment to 006, started it up and within 6 or so minutes it sounded like I left the adjusters ...

I see alot of the distributors are vac advance, mine does not have that. Do the drop in kits use the mech advance? I'm pretty sure I have the 009 dist.

I'd be more inclined to refer to it as capillary effect rather than meniscus. Meniscus is the surface tension of a liquid to both itself and to the container. Capillary is the motion of a liquid in r ...

Does anyone know what size the two studs are that go on the bottom of the engine case where it meets the transmission case? Mine has bolts and I'd like to get the right studs back in there.

When I overhauled the engine I machined the rocker arms at the valve end so that the larger adjusters would fit in and I think I have one shim under each of the pedestals. I also cut the oil groove as ...
