[DML] Re: Plug Gaps and final smog numbers

That's failing I assume at the 15 mph mark? Have you checked the 
adjustment on your miro switch? If it is turning off too late you will 
not get vacuum advance at the lower RPM and the idle motor is still 
trying to function. The specs are in the manual. This is a very 
sensative adjustment - too late a turn off - you get just-off-idle poor 
performance - too early - no dash-pot effect coming off higher rpms 
(the engine wants to die before it levels off to idle).
