There were two different skirts used. One was teardrop shaped, and, yes, the rear trim would have been shorter if those skirts were used. The second style was as shown above, and the fender trim would have not been different. The trim on the skirts is something you see done in more recent times. I do not believe the factory offered that.


Thank you so much that is good to know so i wont hold out for the ones with the trim, still no one has any idea on where to purchase?

Thank you for that tutelage, John. How do I check to see if the vacuum advance is actually ADVANCING?? I notice a slight increase in RPM's when I hook the vacuum back up after engine timing so I THINK it's working. Also, have sucked on the vacuum line with the distributor cap off and I can see the cage move. I guess the question is: how much?? Is it enough vacuum? and how to measure that? (I do not have a vacuum gauge, although it is something I have contemplated buying)

I havent read the service book on this so i dont know what the figures should be...maybe some of the more knowledgeable here would know. A previous poster said total timing is static (initial) done with a timing light, plus the vacuum and the mechanical advance. Total timing should only be your static (initial) plus mechanical. I dont think the vacuum pot on these older cars are adjustable and the vacuum advance is what it is, it should only come in a on hard throttle or hill climb, with little too no vacuum at cruising and idle. You can check your total timing with a timing light that has the knob on it with numbers around it, lets say turn it to 20, thats degrees in advance rev the engine with the vacuum advance disconnected, while watching the light and timing mark it should stop at what ever your static (initial) timing is set to no matter what you rev the engine too, if it doesn't then move the knob a little higher until the timing mark stops on static (initial) what ever the number your knob is on plus the static (initial)will be your total timing, also note your rpm this where the timing is "totally in" with these motors i cant believe its more than 2800-3000 RPM but im guessing. With the vacuum hooked up take it for spin do some heavy throttle accelerations and hills, if its pinging reduce your total timing either by initial or mechanical, if no pinging and you want a little more performance give it a little more total timing, this would be done easily by increasing the static (initial) a little at a time until your happy with the way its running, or until you get pinging then back it off just until the pinging stops.

Hope this clears it up, I have never been the best writer, i know what i want to say but the mind is faster than my typing

Hope this helps but for the life of me i have no idea where to get figures for total timing, or even what the vacuum pot is set for.

Hey Chris great read......as far as other engines go i have always set it to the hard start when hot and then retard a bit and check the total timing this is important, but one thing im not reading here is a mention of total timing, what are you getting for total timing and when it is "all in" should also play....to much and you can hurt the motor. Maybe it doesn't matter on these motors?????
