Re: Car bogs and dies at WOT
Respectfully to Everett, please do not set timing with a vacuum gauge, timing is a collection of specific settings, and needs to be set that way.
If possible, might you do a rudimentary timing assessment for us, please?
If so, please mark the balancer and do not use any "dial back" feature on the timing light.
Disconnect the distributor vacuum advance hose, and plug the end.
At idle, please record the timing.
Then, slowly rev the engine until the timing stops going up, record. This should be no higher than about 3,200 or so RPM's.
Back at idle, reconnect the vacuum advance hose, and re-read the engine idling timing, record, and post for us, please.
We can help with the timing then, if need be.
