purchasing the instructions that originally came with the product. They'll probably send you the shit for free.
"-It requires a voes or at least has the wire if I choose to use it."
Exactly..."IF"...meaning you can use the VOES as your advance module, or use the designed-in Accel advanced curves that come with the dipshit switches. Like I said...I doubt you can use both in tandem.
"And my S&S works OK but to compare to cv smoothness or mik smoothness and larger bore...Can you compare them?"
I'd rather not get into a which-carburetor-is-best debate. All things equal in the universe - both carburetors work well in certain applications. In other applications...they take some modifications. Without a hands-on situation...dianostics and recommendations, over the internet sucks a dick at best. You CAN download the installation instructions for your S&S carburetor, in .pdf format, directly from the S&S website. Tweaking your S&S isn't that hard for the modifications you have. Aside from checking for manifold vacuum leaks and jet changes...it's fairly simple. Jets are cheap...for about $25 or $30 you can buy the next sizes up, or down, and experiment with them.
"Ok I guess what I need to know is how to time...".
Not a problem. Buy a service manual.
"I tried plastic plug short and long, rubber hose screwed in there i still cant see shit. Any pointers?
In order to see the timing marks you need to know how to set the plastic plug up. You can't just screw it in there and expect to see the timing marks. It's not a window. First, you have to have "clean" oil. Second, bring the marks up on the hole, wipe the oil off and mark the grooves with a white enamel paint with an artist's brush. Third, when the paint has dried, screw the plug in until it bottoms out on the flywheel, then back it off an eighth of a turn. That creates an oil bridge between the plastic and the flywheel so the light can transfer to the flywheel marks. If it bottoms out on the case first...you'll never see the mark on the wheel.
Myself, I don't even fuck with plastic plugs anymore. What I do is pull the outer primary, pull the timing plug, run the timing mark(s) up into the timing hole...then I mark the alternator rotor and the inner primary. Replace the outer primary with a new gasket and use the chain inspection hole to view the timing marks. I've found that that yellow paint they use in the junk yards to mark car parts works the best. That paint sticks like shit on an Army blanket!
Since you're running ported heads, a different profile camshaft, and a different carburetor...I don't have a fucking clue!
"Maybe I can adjust while bike is running and listen for pinging? I think i need to raise lbs on voes cuz pinging at slight acceleration but dont understand why."Without knowing what your TDC timing is actually set at...you're pissing in the wind at that point.
"Then if I change voes does that change final full advance or just "WHEN" it reaches full advance."
VOES takes the place of advance weights. Your total advance is regulated by your ignition plate adjustment at the nosecone.
"Does module have actual curve or just advance---not advanced."
Be more specific. If you asking if the Accel has a built-in advance curve, yes. If you're asking if the VOES deals with the advance curve, yes it does...but the opposite of what an electronic module does. The VOES doesn't advance the timing...it retards it. Works the same way a vacuum advance does on a '61 Chevy.
"I understand mechanical wierghts just advance but theres no curve. Is this correct? If I understand exactly whats happening I can figure out what to do."
Then here's what I suggest you do. Go buy the complete point plate/advance weights setup and install it using your Accel module with all the dipshits turned off...making sure you have the timer centered. If you decide that's what you want to do...I'll explain centering the timer on a nosecone motor. If all else fails...plug off the VOES at the manifold; trash the Accel module; hit the flea market again for a Crane HI-4 and save yourself the grief.
