I'd like for someone to checkmy work, so I set the timing on the bus at 28 degrees BTDC with both hoses off and plugged. When I plugged hoses back in, I had a total advance of 35 degrees and an idle of 12 degrees ATDC.

The thing that concerns me is that I had to open up the air bypass valve on the throttle body to get it to idle (around 800rpm) Any and all thoughts welcome Smile

With vacuum you will have this 35-36* of timing, but not under load.
