    FWIW,
    I run 14 degrees initial with 20 degrees in the distributor and once the motor warms up it idles "nicely"

    You must be a mind reader. I searched through loads of posts last night comparing timing setups. I ended up with the 21 degree bushing. That would be 33 total for now.

    From experience, LOL, I can tell you that it labors to start at about 20 degrees initial.

    My Buick 455 ran 23/35 all by 2000rpm. Not this engine. Not that it needs more low end.
