OK, just finished checking the "all in" rpm's with the help of my father-in-law.
All in is 38 degrees.
The rpm's at "all in" were 3500.
At 3000 rpm it was at ~36, and at 2500 it was at 34 degrees.

So I'm going to get one those springs kits from NAPA and work it more toward 2500 rpm for all in. Might be next weekend before I can get to that.

Installed the new (and correct) Pertronix coil, Autolite 45 plugs, new vacuum advance canister, and Accel plug wires. Re-tuned and timed everything over and over to the point where it's running and staring real nice. Even stretched the large timing curve spring a little more as you can sort of see in this picture. Have you ever seen badging like this?

The motor seems to have a slight vibration. I installed a new fan clutch, do you think this could cause a noticeable vibration? It even feel like it vibrates while idling.
