Mario,

Sounds like this whole starting issue is like an electronic ridle(r).

Mario,

Good luck at the dyno today.

I am usually hesitant about people bad-mouthing businesses on social media because it can shut a place down in a hurry, but when someone gets totally raked over the coals other potential customers need to know. I HATE(and I don't like that word)hearing stories of incompetence or down right thievery.

We go to the dyno tomorrow My nephews guy has the place rented for the afternoon. This will be the first time I'm going so I can see for myself that everything is good to go.
Best of luck, keep us posted.
Regarding the timing issue, I've always told others just because you CAN do that doesn't mean you SHOULD do that. Plus too many charge too much $$$. This ain't that difficult.
Again best of luck.

Well we had a productive outing at the tuner last week . The car starts perfect now. It wasn't hard to figure out the starting problem it was trying to start at almost 50 degrees advance !!!!!!!!!!! We thought it was 38 degrees at first but we were wrong. Now with the MSD starter saver it works perfect. I'm going to run it this way until Holley makes the distributor I need . They currently don't make the short version I need for my car.

Good to hear Mario!!!



Just one other question on the brakes -- no need to respond here -- have you checked your PEDAL RATIO -- it should be 6:1 or so ---- not the 4:1 for power brakes.

My guess is -- that Master Cylinder is too small diameter and might not be able to provide the VOLUME required for your huge by large braking system.

That's exactly it Greg!

So what you're telling me here is that the Holley Dominator never controlled the timing on your set-up, is that correct?

That's a question that's never been answered!! As I said before I have been reading and learning about this system on my own . It frustrates the crap out of me when the people that say they know can't give you an answer. I learn new things every day in my business I have to deal with every make of car you can imagine. This is just another thing I'll read up on and learn trust me . But I've been talking with Holley and there looking into setting me up with a PRO BILLET distributor with all there new technology in it . They don't make the short version that I currently have in my car.
