  1. I also do not believe in starting fluid that's why I am thinking timing, I ran the engine in the closed garage and did see the flame out of the carb I set the timing by putting a rod on the piston top and cranked it to #1 cylinder....since had had the control to full retard when setting I thought maybe I should have set it to full advance before setting the timing
  2. I have a new cap ,rotor points and condenser in it ,plugs were new but dirty and I cleaned them wires looked new ,when I got the car it was on the wrong firing order...thanks to spinneyhill I reset the points , plugs and corrected firing order adjusted carb.....I noticed rotor was off by about 1/2 turn reset my manual lever to full retard loosened and turned the distributor to #1 and tightened....this engine at 30 degrees out side started better than any car I have worked on...it is could natured but when warmed up is great...when I manually rev up engine the deaccelerate rapidly can see back fire from carb.....does seem low on power in 3rd gear....have orderd an adaptor for my compression tested so I can check it any other ideas ?
  3. spinneyhill….thanks for the great and detailed info....it helps a lot......the car starts a lot easier and sounds better but I can see a backfire thru the card when I increase then decrease the rpm....I know it has the wrong carb on it it has a tillitson jr5a replacement could this be it ?
  4. does anyone know the tune up specs for a 27 Chrysler model 50 flat head 4 cylinder ?

  8. sorry it took so long to get back had surgery on right hand....on the 4 cyl flat head I am working on I put a straw in #1 cylinder to bring up to tdc ...the ignition rotor is apx 1/16 inch off when I used my light to check for static spark which I have.....engine is running but can hear a slight backfire worse when cold I have never pulled on of these distributors....is it just gear driven that I could pull it and reset it ?...I am using the 1-4-3-2 firing order...any other ideas?
