    new vacuum advance units are only 20 or 30 bucks, and are easy to change out. Looks like a fail safe thermostat. Must have gotten warm enough to jam it open.
    I'm remembering back now, didn't you replace the entire distributor? Doesn't mean it's working properly tho.

    Yes I'm on distributor #2 first one the icm died after 100 miles. I've got a little bit of warranty left on it. And it was a fail safe. First one I've had actually stuck open.

    I'm gonna try and get into the distributor and determine if its sticking first and trying tweaking the timing.

    It's been running pretty good the last couple days "knock on wood" if I just drive it and not baby the throttle it does ok. It only leans out at a constant speed.

    So far so good it runs much better. I'm hoping one I get the timing dialed in I'll be done with getting it to run better and I can go back modifying things on it. It still wants to diesel when I shut it off. Once I get that cleared up I'm gonna work on building some bumpers front and rear.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the spacer/adapter plates for a weber from getting loose I have developed a vacuum leak either between the bottom or middle or hell the bottom of the carb. But its making a good squealing sound and the starting fluid test makes it rev right up.

    Try using stainless steel studs/bolts. They have a sharper thread cut. Probably need a little loctite on the threads too.

    I used loctite. I made my gaskets for the carb spacer out of, the cardboard box that my intake manifold gasket came in... I was commuting 200 miles a day while in the process of moving and developed a vacuum leak on the adapter. The only card stock I had was that box, and it had a shiny printed surface on one side. It's been in there over 50k miles now. A healthy dose of permatex indian head gasket shellac on the gasket and mating surface, and some loctite on the fasteners worked for me. I took my adapter off and discovered that over torquing the fasteners had warped the adapter plate. I sanded it on a flat surface plate while I had it apart. Tractor supply usually has a cellulose paper gasket material in a roll in the tractor parts area. Cellulose paper is what you want. The rubberized fuel safe gasket material I haven't had good luck with.

    You'll probably be playing with the jet sizing again. I'm curious if it pulls harder on the highway now?

    Took it to the farm and it did good still need to lean it back out on idle. But other than that its probably running good enough for me. The 4x4 works really good.
