Late ignition. Timing

Posted by Paul E. Gallagher On 2022/11/8 21:19:24
I just got my car back from having the exhaust manifold replaced because it was leaking. The car is running fairly well but it seems as it could be more peppy. It seems to be laboring at 55 to 60 mph.

I hooked by a vacuum gauge by disconnecting the tube to the wipers. The needle is not steady (wavering) and below normal, which on the gauge reads “late ignition timing”.

Any ideas on what to do.?

Both the car and me are 73 years old, maybe I should be happy with what I have.

You members are always so helpfull, so I humbly thank you in advance for your comments.
