Sure I remember Sandy. Typically when a distributor is locked down there are electronics in place that handle the advance curve. I've never heard of static timing used on an engine and don't see how that could work, at least on a street car. The idle would be crazy high and 22* leaves at least 4* on the table at 4000+rpm. I'd like to know more about this.

I appreciate your comments but I'm not a trained mechanic. Yes there is a lot of BS on the internet which is why a second opinion from a seasoned mechanic is wise. The stuff I am involved with is a side-bar to the exhaust and fuel system work I do. You get exposed to a lot of odd maladies by default.
