    I believe that it's 8*-10*. At the shop I used to work at, we felt that the N/A engines ran better closer to the 10*. Turbo engines seem to like it better with less advance. After thinking about it, the specs may be 8*+/-2*.

    What in the world kind of fan is that? I've never seen one on an IDI.

    Now that makes sense. It does look like a gas engine fan.

    Okay found one on my parts pump. However when I put power to it it does not move unless I first give a throttle then it will stay extended does that mean it's weak?

    That's just how they work, needs driver input to advance.
