Meet WAYGUN!!

Update..
Filled her up today.I was still running on the tank I filled in Toronto Saturday!!
She was thirsty,though.70.00 worth of 91 octane 59 litres or 16.65 gallons
With the fresh gas in her belly,I wanted to check the timing.
The trip to Toronto she started to deisel and was running hot,and took a bit of effort to get up to speed.
Timing was found at TDC or zero.vacuum was low and could come up a bit.
basically,timing was retarded.
I cranked her up at 7 degrees BTC.Vacuum jumped to a rock steady 20 inches on the nose.
I dropped the idle down to normal and the vacuum stayed at 20.
She now very responsive.I took her for a drive and made sure she did not ping...no ping under a load up a hill.no need to downshift...lots of torque,no clutch slip..That's good.
No flat spot...even much better.
I have not yet dumped  the clutch and lay rubber.
The condition of the clutch is unknown and I am not about to find out.
Maybe 10 degrees would be better? Being a standard trans,not much more may be??
 I had in the past ran 10-12 degrees in my other 318's with automatics.


Plugs are tan in color with some light deposits,(running a tad lean ,sign of getting hot.)
Plug Gap at 35 thou.
 
Waygun purrs now..You can put a sleeping baby on the air cleaner and not wake up.

I will find out soon enough tomorrow morning when I get ready to go to work.
Found out from a local friend the 73 318 factory initial timing was a ZERO.
So we will see if jacking her up will help or hinder my MPG.
