.... and found out that the Demon carb has 2 vacuum ports for timing advance on the dist- among other vacuum uses. Well- one of the ports is direct manifold vacuum (manifold timing for vacuum advance) whereas the other is ported vacuum (throttle opening advance). Ok- I'm using a Mallory HEI- http://www.malloryperformance.com/ProductDetails.aspx?brandID=6&productID=3575036&txtSearch=8548201C
and no longer have the 10 page instruction manual that came with it so I really don't know which port to use.
As for carb tuning- I don't know if it's the choke that's making the engine run so hard at roughly 1200 to 1400rpm idling or what. I let the thing run for a while (open headers haha) untill the thermostat opened and my temp guage never read over 179deg. I figure by then the elec choke would have cut off? No- yes, maybe so? The choke's timging can be timed too- I can twist it clockwise to decrease the amount of time it takes for the choke to pull off- however again this pulls me back to should the choke be wired in hot at all times the ignition is on, or on a separate toggle switch "I" can control (instructions very vague).
As for timing- what would a "tooth-off" on the dist/cam make any difference when you can twist the whole stalk/cap to make up the difference in timing????? I'm confused on that for sure.
