Tonight I re-timed at 1600 RPM as the FSM calls for. The underhood sticker shows 9* plus or minus 2. I have it set right on 9. After adjusting the timing I had to adjust the carb mixture screws and now pulling 19 on the gauge. After doing this I noticed the temp gauge will creep over 210 if left idling. Any ideas what can cause the heat issue? It did not do this before. I took it for a test drive and its still a moving brick, but it does it very smooth.
Now I am thinking that the PO tried to time it by ear and had it way advanced giving it the added power I am missing. Or I knocked something out of place on the throttle bracket when I pulled the intake/exhaust to replace the gasket. Does the throttle setup look right below?
