    I thought I found an error in this video but further checking revealed that, yes indeed, the ignition timing was set at TDC in the 1951 and 1952 hemi's.

    Or have one of the moderators move the whole thread then delete what is not germane for the subject at hand.
    This thread could be in two different sections in the Tech; ignition and ID

    GMC Bubba, lucky for you I don't live close to you. You couldn't run me off with a big stick for hanging around so much ! I would love to learn a fraction of what you know about this.

    ...and that is the biggest challenge with the old distributors. I hope that you bought all that were available, no, to hoard, but to keep them out of a landfill...…...
