Re: [DML] DeLorean vs Volvo F Series Question (Martin Gutkowski)

Hmmm, me thinks you told your British buddies something different:

Specifically check out the message dated 11/30/06 23:46.

I had Volvo's advance numbers at one time but can't seem to locate
them when I need them most. Let's just assume that maximum spark
advance is identical between B28 and "B29" (I've never heard of such ,
but that's what your message dated 11/28/06 18:58 calls DeLorean's
engine). If Volvo is starting at ten degrees BTDC, and DMC is starting
13 degrees BTDC, Volvo certainly has a steeper advance curve.

BTW: Claire apparently agrees with me -- 

FWIW: My distributor came with a Peugot sticker on the side. Differs
slightly from DeLorean's unit by using a traditional hold down clamp
rather than a screw through a slot. I assume it has two equal sized
counterweights, just like Volvo, because it makes the engine free
rev'ing as hell. Base ignition time is 10 degrees BTDC.
