I have only one question:
    Assuming adequate ignition, is there any advantage to running a bit
retarded timing?


  To some degree, advancing and retarding the timing will raise and lower 
the torque peak/s respectively.  In 55mph days I ran my yellow dot pump 
at 1.05mm as per our shop foreman's instructions.  After that silliness was 
gone it felt a little anemic so I tried the Bentley called for 1.15mm.  It 
was a little noisier but noticeably better power at 60mph.
