340 Chugging instead of Reving

If you set it to 32 internally you’ll have 32 degrees of MECHANICAL advance. That’s not what you want. You want “0” degrees of mechanical advance. I’ve never had my hands on that distributor so I don’t know how big the slots are, but basically you want to adjust it with no keys if that makes sense. You want the distributor shaft and the reluctor plate to be “locked” together. Then you’ll have no mechanical. Make sense?

Inside of the distributor the picture shows the slot alignment after moving the plate to 0* . I'll lock the adjustment there. Since the springs are obviously not doing anything when locked, I am removing them.
