Is the timing supposed to be set with the Jeep in "Park" or "Drive"? (with the brake set!) I read that timing is more accurate set in gear for an auto. True??
TIA

WOW. What an explaination!
The engine is new, so I have good timing components. (chain and gears) What happens if I have just over 200 RPM difference between Park and Drive? It goes from around 700 in Drive to around 950 in Park.
Thanks for all the details!

Quadrajet on top of an Edelbrock Performer.
This is a used tranny. Could it be causing too much drag?

It's not slamming at all. I DID notice a loss of power when I installed the auto, compared to the T-176 I had. I understand some of this is normal.
I'm a real newbie to Q-jets, so an incorrect carb setting is a probability! I'm trying to read all I can about them.
Thanks again.
