Xflows just love timing.Never had one stock or modified that didnt respond well to timing.
Camshaft has alota effect on timing in stock mild combos. But mismatched cam comp is dangerous with timing. Other thing is...the engine wants what it wants. Doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it if it likes timing as long as its safe.
If a engine takes bulk timing its prob over cammed with low comp. Seems basic but timing helps here. Reading plugs is the best way to set timing imo. Only way I do it.
I cant take any decent photos of the car as it sits now too much junk around it.
Here are some of when I was last working on it not great photos but you get the idea of what I like to do with cars.
I have the front end back together mostly. Missing a pitman arm for the reconditioned ps box should have one shortly.
Unfortunately its going to be slower progress on all fronts next week got other jobs which cannot wait.
But you can see that the Galaxie does exist and the restoration is definitely started!
