    Alright well i'm new to these flatheads. The motor sounds real good. I just need someone to Time it (possibly new points and condenser) and adjust the carb. I just don't know where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

    Alright I got the points all dialed in (teaching myself a little at a time). Car is running 5Xs smoother now. Still have a little smoke from the tailpipes. Could it be timing and/or carb mixture? Doesn't seem to be burning all the fuel and no it isn't blue smoke. Thanks.

    not sure if he is still working on engines, but Joe Bogosian is in town, and has been a flathead race engine master for years. His shop is at 41 and 180 area, if I remember correctly
