This past Saturday, while I was changing plugs and plug wires, I decided to
bump the timing as I did with my '85 4000.  I was surprised to see that the

I've got an automatic (sigh) so I'm leery of giving up too much bottom-end;
next weekend, when I change the timing belt, I plan to install an adjustable
timing gear that's lying around and advance the cam timing 4 degrees or so.

I'm certainly tempted ... let me know how it works out.  Thanks for your
