Got almost 7hrs on my freshly rebuilt 158 3cyl gasser. Had some questions (Holley carb - fresh re-rebuild with HCK02 carb kit, new pump spring and throttle shaft seal, check valve and #53 jet clean, all passages flow carb cleaner, float set to 25mm excluding bowl gasket thickness).

Vac advance works, setting ign timing I know it needs 2* initial and the manual specs that with vac advance plugged and 6-800 rpm. Vac advance works.

1.)I can't get it to idle smoothly/consistently below 1100 so I was trying to set total timing. @2000 rpm it really likes 22-24* advance. Dropping rpm down to the 1100 and it's around 10-12. This is with the vac advance plugged up - with my vac gauge. Does anyone know what total advance is supposed to be? (searching I found Hobo 'spects its 18-24 but nothing definate).

2.) Fiddling with the carb air fuel screw (@1000-1100rpm) I can't get the manifold vac reading much beyond 10in/hg. I'm wondering if anyone's taken a vac reading on theirs and maybe the 1100 idle speed is holding the throttle open to the point I'm negating most of the idle circuit as I can only get the vac reading to change from 10 down to a stumbly 5. Started at 1 turn out, not sure where it's at right now.

Today's Featured Article - Trenching With a Plow - by Staff. Introduction: This interesting information came from one of the discussion forums here at YT. We thought we should place it up front so it could be read by anyone interested in putting old iron to work. [Editor] I tried something new today, and it worked so well I thought I should post it - in case it might help someone else. I'm running 100 yards of 4" drain pipe from the gutter downspouts of our house to a pond down the hill. This should hel ... [Read Article]
