    Timing varies

    Car, only sometimes runs terrible especially at low speeds and load. I looked at damper with a timing light and sure enuff, the timing at idle/off idle is jerking around. Timing mark pops counter clockwise every few seconds. I figure this is ppotentially dangerous if it happens in
