How to Wake Up the Carter BBD
My Carter BBD just woke up.....I completed the HEI mod this morning and took it out for a spin...DAMN....
I thought I had my ignition system in good shape....I was wrong.
Gone are the dead spots in the accel curve...the hesitation...and poor power at higher RPM's. I still have some work to do getting the advance right. I have the adjustable vacuum advance and I its giving too much advance right now....it pings at slight accel...but put ur foot in it and no pinging. I'm curious to see how good the performance will be once I get the mechanical advance right. Any input on the right springs will be great.
Anyway....the HEI has made a believer out of me.
