Does anyone have any reading material on how to set a carb / time an engine for someone that knows nothing about the matter at all?

Thanks

Frankie,

This is some good background info. For Ignition basics, this is a pretty good overview. Ignition Basics For info on how to set Static timing, the Chiltons manual is probably the best source. More advanced timing issues are handled pretty well here Carbdford

For carbs, The Holley Tech Manual is a good place to start. Holley From there, you can read a little further with this.

For a book you can lay your hands on, I like this. I had a copy in the '80s and it was a pretty good overview. Probably a bit dated but not that much has changed.

frank; go to www.4secondsflat.com, download the $10 word document on carb tuning. It's deals with the demon carbs, but it applies to the holley's/others as well. Well worth the price of admission...
