I tested the following:

10 psi air to both sides - no change of the actuator rod length
10 psi air to back side only - no change of the actuator rod length
10 psi air to the front side only - rod extended (retarded) 4mm

20 In Hg vacuum to both sides - no change of the actuator rod length
20 In Hg vacuum to back side only - 4mm extension (retarded)
20 In Hg vacuum to front side only - 2mm retraction (advance)



I dug out the solenoids and tested them:

No Power - Distributor port is connected to source port. I checked with both 20 In Hg vacuum and 15 psi air.

12V applied to solenoid - Source port is shut off and distributor port connects to atmosphere. I checked with both 20 In Hg vacuum and 15 psi air.



I did all this work. Is it asking too much for somebody with a stock car to run a couple of wires back to the solenoid with the car under boost and check for voltage?
