Hi there!

Beginner question:

 

91 Carb Cooper with 65D electronic distributor with vacum advance.
After watching some videos on how to set the timing, I am unsure if this distributor has a mechanical advance or not. The car has no ECU as it is a carb'd

Asking to know if after setting the initial timing at idle with vacum unplugged, should I do the full vac advance adjustment as well on this distributor? Hopefully I am being clear.

Thanks for the help!

It does have a Mechanical Advance mechanism.

 

Timing is usually set with the Vacuum Advance Disconnected.

 

It maybe a good idea after setting it, to check it for full advance and at what revs that occurs at.
