I suggest that you use the Appollo gauge to find top dead center. Then make a new mark on the flywheel that aligns with the indicator and mark it with “white out”” or something similar.

Then slowly turn the engine until the old marks come up and determine (if possible) the distance for three degrees either side of TDC. Then you can make a second set of marks to either side of your first “”New”” mark and you now have a new TDC mark plus a little “”Kentucky windage”” to either side.

With this in place and a timing light you can now bring your timing to within a few degrees of spec.

I’m speculating that right now your timing is too advanced.

Sorry that I can’t help on staggering the two sets of points.

See you at Gilmore.
