How does setting my timing change the motor?
Set timing-1 cylinder change point gap, more gap more advance timing. Typically for every .001" wider points gap equals about 1 degree more advanced timing. Usually the limit on points gag is about .025" or so. If it gets too wide the push pin on the back will bottom out and keep the points from closing all the way and it won't run at that point. You can use our Chevy Points Bracket and high performance points to eliminate any points bounce. To eliminate the points all together you can use our crank trigger electronic ignition.
