My numbers w manifold timing

On the 86 with the new cam

at idle set initial timing at 16 with vacuum disconnected (idle was a bit high in neutral at 900ish)

when vacuum is reconnected timing is about 45 at idle

when vacuum disconnected and rpm at 2000 timing was 20, I did not check with vacuum reconnected

no pinging and great pick up in the sierra foothills, of course as some of you have learnt, my speedo is totally off by 10 mph... but still the engine went up at 60mph on some of the steep inclines, because I assumed that the speedo was correct and 50mph on the steepest climb because I did not challenge the skinny pedal
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.
