I already posted how I would have done this. But for starters, what coil are you using? It is going to make a difference depending on the coil you have.

Re: timing advance how much is to much

I have not had any experience with the fun projects regulators, but in general the charging system should be outputting in the ranges you listed (high 6v to low 7v range). With a later regulator that...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

The carburetors are going to be the same size and require the same spacing on any of the manifolds. If you move the one carburetor back to clear the generator the second carb will have to be further...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

There are several books out there on the topic. One is JWLs (who post often here on the Barn) book. Joe Abbin also has books out with dyno data.
