Re: Troubleshooting your ignition system

I've got a duraspark in my 351 mach1

It starts and runs fine just driving down the road but as soon as I accelerate harder it backfires and splutters until I lift of the gas.

When I use the timing light on it I find that the total advance is above 40deg at +2500rpm

Seems to me like it's over advancing How do I adjust the advance to limit it in the internals of the distributor?
