Have a look on Craigslist or something.
302 intakes are a dime a dozen (about $50)

An HEI distributor can be had for the same from Ebay.
Quality varies, so look for good feedback and many units sold.

The timing is set where it started, so in other words I have no idea, I only know that the distributor will only turn clockwise, and not at all counter.

Spout plug? Not sure what that is.

This is the jumper that allows the computer to control the ignition timing.

When you remove it, the PIP inside the distributor and the TFI on the side are all that control when the spark happens.

The timing will be locked, except what adjustment you make.
The computer can't do anything now anyhow...

ok, I was wrong about the distributor, it will turn both ways, I found it was hitting the nut head from the clamp on the radiator hose where the thermostat is at.

You should unplug it any time you make a timing adjustment.

There's no point in putting it back, because your computer doesn't have enough information to factor a curve.

OK, I unplugged the spout plug, and didnt notice any difference in the running, still have to keep cloth in secondary's to keep it running....

Note to self.......dont hold the distributor while holding the linkage or other metals....

Don't worry, you won't forget that very quickly.

OK, I was not able to get any gauges last night, long story not worth going into..


But if this seems logical I am going to pull the carb back off and break it down, take pictures of everything as well as the manifold, do another plate cleaning.

Do you know of a sign I could look for that a vacuum leak may be around the gaskets?

Going to take off the vacuum hoses and check for any holes or signs of wear.

While I have this apart, can you think of anything in particular I should look for or try?

It is really hard to find a vacuum leak by a visual inspection. Far easier to hear it by sticking a hose in your ear and placing the other end close to possible sources of a leak. Or, squirting brake or carb cleaner.

OK, I have tried carb cleaner, but found nothing, but I will def try the hose idea, Haven't heard that b4 but makes perfect sense.

It will be Monday b4 I can get the gauges, but till then I don't want to stand idle when I can look for other possible problems. But I will hold off on pulling the the carb off for now, but I can say that when it is running I can hear a high hissing coming from the secondary's, unless I have the cloth in them at which I can still hear it but nowhere near as loud.

For the moment I will try the hose and see if I can find anything else.

I would be curious how it would react if you turned the mixture out from 1 1/2 turns to 2 turns to 2 1/2 turns.

Don't be afraid to try things. The engine will react and give you clues. Just like putting the rags over the secondaries makes it run, that is a clue you are getting too much air, or not enough fuel. That's why I am curious what would happen if you turn the screws out some.

What happens if the 2bbl is put back on, just for a test?
