Ok,
Here is the problem. My 81 Turbo's timing is way off. It is off almost 30 degrees off from what is supposed to be set at. Factory specs are at 20 degrees plus/minus 3 degrees BTDC. Unfortunately it is running 40-50 degrees BTDC. The reason for the variance(40-50) is because I tried to adjust down at the crank sensor but it did not change it that much. It runs and runs well except to the lack of horsepower down low. That is why I started checking things and found it out of wack this much explains alot. Anyone got a clue. Could the pin in the distributor moved? I don't think so. Last time in the distributor everything was fine and there is no advance or anything else to adjust. Could the distributor shaft be installed wrong?
HELP______HELP________HELP

Thanks Scott

> try looking down the index(press the back button on your web browser)for an insert called TIMING IS EVERETHING. An individual named Bob A. shot me straight in the direction I needed to go by responding to my problem. I just got through timing my 78 so if you have any trouble you obviously know the web site to call. Good Luck. JN.
