EB Falcon tune settings

Hi all

Can someone please tell me the correct tuning setting for a EB Falcon 6. It has a carby and points. Car is a auto. Not electrical distributor and no EFI.

Just after the following:
Points Gap?
Timing Degree?
Spark Plug Gap?

NO manual with the car and trying to tune it properly but don't know the exact gaps.

Any any other useful info to setup for long distance driving.

Much Appreciated.

Cheers
Andrew

Re: EB Falcon tune settings

sounds like a oddball/bush mechanics EB....

dwell angle ~34-36 degrees, i dont know what the points gap would be....

timing ~8-10 degrees BTDC

spark plug gap ~ 0.8mm?? as its not electronic anymore which had 1-1.1mm gaps...

Cheers thanks.

Just pulled the plugs out and the gap is much bigger than 1.1 will give the .8 a go.

Cheers

Re: EB Falcon tune settings

if its not running too rough and both dwell angle and timing is correct, giv .85 or .9 a go as usually the bigger the gap the better, until a point of course when it misfires and runs inconsistantly

Re: EB Falcon tune settings

Have modified the Plugs to be .85 and the timing to be 9 degrees and it runs really well now.

Thanks for the help.
