Hi, I have a stock 1600 fully rebuilt and I'm going to put a Magnaspark II distributor kit on it. The engine is in a bay window.

What spring/bushing combination do you recommend me to suit this engine the best?

It has a stock 34 pict 3 and stock exhaust

Thanks

Every engine is different due to all the factors that can make a difference...cam, compression ratio, carb adjustment, vacuum leaks, exhaust, blah, blah...

Try it as it comes. If it times out properly and runs properly through the gears and cruise, then leave it as is. If it does not, then experiment with the other springs until you Get the combo that works best with your engine.
