Question about Chevrolet S 10
Everybody thinks that being one tooth off will grow into 2, 3 and keep growing off, but that is not the case. It stays right where you leave it. On the mark, If you got it to fire right up, you must have gotten it right, I am going over 3 or 4 cars right now with people on here that did the same thing an didn't get it right. The computer takes care of the advance in the spark and the richness of the fuel, among other things, but it sounds like you got the timing ok, if you notice a difference in power, that might be an indication of the dist being off, of course you have no control of that, But in the old days you would have to move the dist a hair. Hope this helps.
