How do you set the vacuum advance?

You want to plug the line to the vacuum advance when setting the timing. After setting the timing, hook the vacuum line back up and adjust your idle speed if necessary. When checking you mechanical (centrifugal) advance, the vacuum line must be plugged as well. Man.

How does vacuum advance work?

This is how vacuum advance works. At part throttle, high manifold vacuum moves the diaphragm in the vacuum advance canister on the distributor to add more timing. But at WOT, the vacuum drops to near zero and vacuum advance is removed and the total timing then is established by the initial plus the mechanical advance.

Should I plug my vacuum advance into a direct source?

Plugging your vacuum advance into a direct source will allow it to engage at idle, which is good for a number of reasons. Much like cruise conditions, engines run leaner at idle than they do under load. Again, this means the mixture burns slower and needs an earlier spark to optimize the burn.

Why does my carburetor have 2 vacuum advance ports?

This might happen when you install a late model carburetor (ported) on a pre 1970 engine. Edelbrock with 2 vacuum advance ports .Looking at the front the left vacuum advance is ported. This should be used on any vehicle that has smog control such as a vacuum canister.On more basic engine installs use the right port, which is a non ported source.

Is there a ported vacuum pressure on a carburetor?

At this time there is no ported vacuum pressure. The throttle plates create a ported signal once they open and air flows past the base plate of the carburetor. Deteriorated or broken vacuum lines can create the same symptoms as a malfunctioning vacuum advance.

What year is a ported vacuum advance carburetor?

In general most ported vacuum advance carburetors will be found on 1970 & later carburetors. Are you having idle problems?You might have a ported vacuum advance type of carburetor, when you actually should be using a non ported type.

Should distributor vacuum advance be connected to timed vacuum port?

In a post here about tuning a carb with a vacuum gauge it was stated that distributor vacuum advance should be connected to timed vacuum port (no vacuum at idle; vacuum increases with rpm). Am I totally wrong here:I have always thought that in a typical carburetted Ford V8 engine the vacuum advance is there to promote engine efficiency/fuel ec...

How does a vacuum canister work on a carb?

As you apply more throttle, air rushes through the carb, into the intake manifold increasing pressure and pushing the diaphragm in the vacuum can right back out, retarding timing back to wherever it would normally be, given engine RPM and mechanical advance. Where should the vacuum canister be routed?
