nutter timing

just did the bypass. when I set the timing I forgot to disconect the vac advance line. it runs like a champ. got it at 8 btdc. I just realized I forgot to disconect it. should I run out and reset the timing or let it go? thanks in advance for help.

Some people set it by ear/feel to whatever amount runs the smoothest, without pinging.

In general, it should be 8* (+/- 2*), with the vac advance disconnected. Some people go as much as 12*.

ok thanks. it's running good got the carter adjusted. I've been reading over doing this for such a long time I can't believe I forgot to disconect the advance when I did the timing. now I'm going to take out unused vacuum lines. do they make a circle air cleaner that will sit on top of the carter carb? replacing the stock air cleaner housing?

Might as well keep the stock air filter housing and just cap off the pulse air ports. The stock air filter setup is basically a cold air intake as it draws from the front of the grill.

Open element setups will get dirty much faster, and they pull in hot air from the engine bay. The engine fan does a nice job of blowing dirt around the engine compartment, resulting in frequent air filter changes. The stock setup avoids this problem by drawing air in from in front of the radiator and fan.

Can I just put some corks in the pulse air port holes? I have to figure out how to pull the pulse air tubes out. I guess I need to take them some where and have them welded shut at cat and on down pipe. Thanks for your input.

Corks or rubber caps should do the trick for the filter housing, you could even have the shop weld up the ports holes on the filter housing if you wanted a more permanent solution.

I actually filled my air ports with hot glue, let it dry, and put it back on. Worked just fine.

I was running 12* with my Nutter. However, my Carter carb took a crap and was causing me all kinds of issues. So I put it back to 8*.

I would re set your timing the correct way and see what you get. I may actually bump mine back up to 12* BTDC this weekend after I change the oil.
