Many thanks for this information. I don't know much about the distributor, it was among the spares that came with the car and I have only just decided to try it out. The part number is D1706, which must be an old number since I cannot find it on the Pertronix site. I did get the car started OK With simple static timing method, and once warmed up I observed the timing mark with my strobe light. It seemed to run best with the light showing about 30^ BTDC. I was not expecting this, but from what you say, maybe I should actually set it at 32^ as seen on the strobe. Am I understanding you correctly? What rpm do you recommend when setting dynamic timing to 32^ BTDC?
