360 question...

Help me out here, guys. At the position where my timing is good, the vacuum advance hose ALMOST rubs against my power steering belt. If the belt is not really tight, it does hit the hose on occasion. Looking at the motor from the front, the advance tube points just to the right of straight out. Can the advance unit be "flipped over" on the distributor? It looks like it would mount either way. I DID use my 258 power steering pump. Could it be mounted wrong? What's happening here?
Thanks as always!

Re: 360 question...

"reset further back"??
PLEASE define... Are you talking about shifting it a few teeth?

Re: 360 question...

i allways have to move all the plug wires over 1 position. this rotates the tinming enough to prevent this.

Re: 360 question...

I can't tell if you're serious...
Can this really be done? Will the distributor turn that far?
It does make sense. I've never tried it. I thought that the timing was only a small adjustment and the distributor wouldn't turn that far. Is the distributor slotted on the bottom, like my 258 was? It is either in the right position, or it's 180 off.
Thanks.

Re: 360 question...

Yes your distributor is slotted like the 258. The guys above are serious. There is no mechanical limit on the distributor as far as adjusting. It will spin 360 degrees with the wires removed.
What they are explaining is how to move the position of your vacuum advance without changing your timing.

Re: 360 question...

Yeah - weird - they are right - mine are one off too based on the marking on the cap for #1...
