I have a VE rotary injection pump and I think the timing from Frito-Lay is too advanced. On my motor there are two marks on the timing cover and one mark on the pump. The mark on the pump is a 1/4" to the right of the closer mark on timing cover(towards the block advanced). It seems a little loud and clattery and smokes black on accelaration. Should I retard it by a 1/8" which would leave me at 1/8" advanced? What is the typical distance between the timing marks?

What is the procedure for checking valvle lash. Also is there any reason for Frito-Lay would have the timing soo far advanced.

I'm gonna try and turn it back to the second of the two marks on the cover which I believe is stock and see how it runs, and advance it from there. I will keep you posted on my findings.
