[DMCForum] Re: 10 Degress BTDC Factory Timing Spec (Martin G)

If you time your DeLo engine 10 degrees, you're deviating from what
the factory intended (flatter advance curve is designed for 13 degrees
base time, at 750 RPM no less!).

This engine is obviously intended to be timed 10 degrees. That means:
- It has a generous advance curve already in its factory matched
distributor, or
- It has high enough compression that I don't want an over advanced
unit, or
- It was never intended to run above 3-4,000 RPM
If the last turns out true, I'll swap distributors. Otherwise my
Renault unit is most likely staying where it is. Besides, I have every
intention of patching that block and putting it back into service in
one capacity or another.
