  1. I set mine at 14 based on experience with other engines at this altitude and the Centerville boys recommendation of 10-12...
  2. Ok i got it much better turns out my vacuum gauge has seen better days..575 in gear 725 in park timing is 14...edelbrock 1906 carb and msd distributor new intake gaskets..vacuum in park is 16 in gear 12 keep in mind in at 5500 ft altitude
  3. Actually this is after a good tune i can get it lower but it’s not as smooth... the mounts are all pretty fresh
  4. My 56 seems to run best at about 725 in gear which is about 975 in park is this a concern for the dynaflow particularly engaging reverse??
  5. Be especially careful with the front cab mounts they love to rust away completely and are easy to over look
  6. Now running a 180 Oreillys part number 3478.. ran a 160 for years but it runs better with the 180
  7. I’ve had the worst luck with modern replacement voltage regulators and they were all made in the usa just junk some dead out of box and yes i polarized them..finally got fed up and went with the powermaster power gen
  8. Don’t worry old tank i was just teasing you a tad i understand why the original set up has issues with hotter sparks:)
  9. I’m super hard headed I’m running a msd distributor and box..gasps heard around the room lol
  10. I’m a fan of the pertronix systems but that being said i did have one go out on me that wasn’t a go no go situation.. this went on for weeks in my 66 f100 middle of summer hot hot here in Albuquerque and I’d always get stuck in bad stop and go on this one spot.. after a few minutes of this the truck would run bad but once i got going it would clear and be perfectly fine until the next time i got stuck there..i tried everything fuel related as i was convinced it was vapor locking on me.. after about a month of this one day I’m stuck there again and it starts acting up again but this times actua
  11. I have that same timing light.. It’s also sold as blue point snap on.. love it and it even works with my msd boxes correctly
  12. Good luck!! Wish you were closer although I’m hoping to move back to nc sometime in the future:)
  13. Low is a separate gear.. it always starts out in high in drive but there is another gear to choose so it is technically a two speed.
