Thanks, guys....

Let's see.... where did we leave off before the bullying...?

Dslywalker: Elevation where I live is about 325 feet above sea level, so I assume thatís not an issue.

Bkeese: Jeep idles fine. Beautifully, even.
Although I think it idles a little fast.

I believe the mechanic said he retarded the timing as much as he could.

Also, now that you mention the thermostat, I do remember thinking the ping was a lot better when I picked it up from the mechanic, but got seem to get worse as I drove it. So a new tístat will go in with new plugs/ wires/ cap, etc next week.

I'm still confused if the Q'trac switch should be hooked up to that port on the carb and whether or not my vac advance is hooked up correctly.

Thanks again,

2X

Your Q'trac appears to be hooked up, correctly.

What Shawn and I are suggesting is for you to disconnect the dizzy from the "spark port", plug that port, and find a manifold vac source to connect it to.

The difference between manifold and ported is manifold has full vac at idle, ported has zero vac at idle. Hooking the dizzy to manifold will activate the advance at idle, thereby advancing the timing and cooling the combustion temps. Ported vac was developed for emissions purposes at the expense of engine performance.

Hope this helps,

Matt

On both of the Quadratrac Jeeps I have/had, the supply is/was hooked up to a small nipple on the intake manifold just behind the carb, not directly to the carb. This was a 304 and a 360. When I installed a 258 in the Jeep I placed a "T" in the vacuum line from the carb to the distributor. You will want full manifold vacuum to the switch/valve in The glove box.

One of the first things I would check is the hold down bolt for the distributor.

Yeah, that was classic Nothing like a soggy, e-gina with gravel in it and a keyboard for company.

OP,

Since new plugs are on the menu, you might want to drop down a couple of heat ranges and do something like an Autolite 5503 or equivalent.

2xtreme, hang in there, man, we'll get it figured out.

What would be really helpful is an overall diagram, or detailed description, of your entire setup. We're looking at bits and pieces in your photos, but don't have the whole picture.

Just a trivial side note, you should put a filter on the intake side of your PCV. Right now, it's just sucking dirty engine compartment air into your engine.

This thread is too long to search if you disconected the vacuum advance and drove it around on just the mechanical advance.
