The 50 cc pumps may hurt the 60'.Thats a lot of fuel to burn with starting line rpm.?Just enough not to stumble is all you want for the best 60'.

You can run 40 to 42 degrees with that small of an engine, i've run as high as 44 degrees with a 358" with tunnel ram and 660 ctr squirter carbs. in a 3,000 lb 66 Nova, it ran high 1.40's and 10.70's.

thanks zip.... i was going to run it at 40 ... but wasn't sure if you could "getaway" with it that high... i adjusted the timing by "ear" where it seemed to like it ... 46degrees ... i thought o hell no..... but you may be rite... it likes the timing.... thanks for the suggestion..... caveman 8) 8) 8)
