Mike.

I didn't forget about you.

Just been super busy at work.

I'm reading the book and it appears you need a jumper to probably jump two pins at the base of the distributor. This is to get it into "base timing" mode. After that, it looks like you want 10* BTDC.

The book does mention the difference between "normal" rotation and reverse rotation. It says that the only difference is that the timing mark plates are reversed on the motor. Do you want me to scan the 2 -3 pages of the book?
