I have checked and re set the ignition timing - retarded it 5 deg from where it was. It is hard to know, (for me anyway) where it should really be set - I'm not sure I have the right vacuum can - I have a single nipple one on a 68H series motor. So, not sure what specs to set it at - but have set it at 26 deg , no vac, at 4000 rpm. It must have been at 31 deg.
Still waiting for O2 sensor to arrive.
Have not done leak down before - I guess I will need another special tool. Sounds like a wise suggestion though.
Have installed new rotors and pads. Two frozen bleed nipples. When was the system last bled?? One of them tore metal out when I got it free with oxy acetylene. Not sure what to do with that one.
Leak down coming up.
Regards
Alan
