Intake is .010
Exhaust is .014

I just used a ratchet to slowly turn the motor to adjust each one after I stared at the order they were going in for a few revolutions I quickly realized the inner ones were exhaust

Car is running way smother since the adjustment but I finally got a timing light on it and realized it was at 20
not sure what the timing is supposed to be set at but I slowed it down to 8and now its running like crap. Like it gets really bogged down when the secondaries open up. Still need to make sure the mechanical timing advance is working and maybe gap my points
