I was going to ask first if you have a Starter Saver box from MSD hooked up ? in Higher compression engines the retard the timing 10 deg (or 20 if you clip the wires) till the motor reaches 800 rpm or so then it shuts off till the motor drops back to 800 again and will kick back in......some times they will mess up.
next I was gonna say that you really need to have a el-cheap-o self powered battery operated timing light to be sure your timing is right when you are running a MSD Dizzy of any type.....there is a lot of debate about how the Digital or regular timing lights will give you a false reading as well .....I know I run mine locked out and with a MSD Starter Saver and a Bronze Dist. Gear and just to check and see what is really what, so I set my timing with my digital Light and then went and double checked it with a cheap self powered lite and sure enough it was off by several degrees at 3000 rpm so I let it idle and re set it and when I slowly reved it up no problems and when I nailed it no problems so I have a Real Nice Digital Timing Light thats barely used that I will sell for 100.00 if anybody wants one lol
