[DML] Re: Timing

Generally when a spec is given with a + or- it means if the timing is
within the spec when you check it you do not need to adjust it. So if
it is 15 degrees or 11 degrees just leave it alone. It can also mean
you can move it up to 2 degrees in either direction of 13. Sometimes
it is useful if you are experiencing overheating or pinging. In my
experience 13 is OK for the most part but if the gass in your area is
not good or you are at a high elevation you may have to go away from
13. Straying from 13 can cause a loss in performance and/or gas
mileage while also affecting emissions.

added John Hervey's kit with the Bosch platinum + 4 plugs, 8 mm wires,
MSD Blaster + 2 coil and high performance resistor.  I know the timing
can be adjusted plus or minus 2 degrees.  Does adjusting it at a
certain point within that range yield better performance.  If so, does
it vary with grade of gas? I am currently right at 13 degrees and
haven't had the time to play with timing (plus I am not in the mood to
stick my hand in a hot engine to play with the adjustment). Just
getting the timing to 13 degrees has resulted in me burning the finger
prints off of my hands.
