Help what have I done? I tossed my iron intake and Q-jet and installed a Edelbrock Performer and 1405(which I bought from a fellow member and a good deal too).Two weeks before the transplant I did plugs,wires, cap,rotor,breather,pcv,fuel and air filters.The truck ran fine if you like bogged out tanks! The intake was cleaned up and I rebuilt the carb,I'm no expert but I've done this a few times before.I used a full rebuild kit plus a whole new choke kit,and jets, needles,springs and a new accelerator pump.Now itz like Edgar Allen Poe is under my hood! The pinging won't go away! The further counterclockwise I set the timing the worse it gets thru the entire driving range.And I can't turn it clockwise enough, my vacuum advance hits the firewall.Did I screw up the carb? Is there something wrong with my distributor I've double checked and I'm sure I put the intake in right side up! The killer is my mileage has improved 30% and I can squawk my 33"Michelins!
