Wayne, What motor and dist? The SC dizzys did not have much advance and usually require a recurve. I am using a 78 dist. with carbs and it does not seem to be quite enough. The total advance is about 19 +/- 2 deg if i remember correctly. i have mine set at 12 BTDC at idle which gives me about 30 BTDC at 6K. not ideal.

I don't see how you can have a 2.7 dist in the car. It would spin backwards in the 3.0 even if the gear was changed.

You can mill a bit from the plate using a dremmel to increase the total mechanical advance.
Jamie - I can explain it to you. But I can not understand it for you.
