Thanks Ernie for sharing your idea. I have to admit my question was expecting your response.

My 1930 Ford Model A Roadster Hot Rod has a 1967 Chevy 283 engine. When I got the car the vacuum advance was connected to a ported outlet on the carburetor. Temperature would quickly rise when the car was stopped and idling. I changed the connection to take vacuum from the intake manifold and the problem was solved. It will idle all day and not over heat. In addition, it runs smoother.

To set the timing I removed and plugged the line, set the timing to spec, reconnected the line and adjusted the idle speed.

Let us know how your idea works out.
