Replaced intake on my '63 nova with a 350 sbc
engine on TDC with #1 cyl. ready to fire,rotor is a little
before #1 cyl tower on dist. starts up just fine,but when
using a timing light to set timing the mark on the damper,
the engine runs great and at highest vacuum with the mark
well advanced and off the timing pointer.When I rotate dist.
clockwise the mark moves toward timing marks on pointer
and right around 12 to 10 degrees BTDC the engine will stall. I
can't get it any closer to TDC.
Wires are correct and in right firing order on dist. And #1 cyl is
on compression stroke.
Can anyone help me with this problem?
