Re: Timing reference

your symptoms sound like late ignition timing.

what method are you using to establish top dead center?

check your timing again, and maybe your process as pat suggested.

make sure to also check that your top dead center mark ( >3/4") still corresponds, not just that points open at notch. any rotation of the crank during the process will alter timing.

highly suggest a micrometer ignition gauge.
