    I backed timing off to 17* initial and fattened both idle screws a little and it's running very smooth. I was running premium fuel and with adjusting the carb I was starting to get low rpm knocking with the 20*+ initial timing so hopefully this will cure it. I'm hoping I can run regular now without the risk of knocking, but we'll see. It also ran decent all the way down into the single digits for initial timing which is a relief as it would die before I got the carb adjusted if I went near it. It ran at 0 degrees timing too, but it didn't like it (obviously).

    Haven't really messed with the truck since February. It still drinks gas like nobodies business, but it warms up fast on these cold(er) mornings. Its leaking oil out the breather at the rear of the passenger side valve cover. I'm going to do an oil change and keep on driving it. Its definitely got more go than my IDI does.
