"I have not read every post in detail and may have missed something, but when you set car idle you want to fact out all other vacuum on the car. Disconnect the vacuum hose off the back of the intake, and plug it up! If any doubt you can even plug the…"

"For me, the vacuum advancer adjusted all 15 degrees at idle when connected to driver-side port. it made the idle rough and car also vibrated in non-cadillac way. I will fix the port in 20-80 vacuum valve during winter."

"The vacuum advance will work in both the left and right vacuum ports on the carb but produces more power on the left side of the carb as it improves the cars timing curve over the stock one for more performance  Enjoy "
