I didn't know about the little gray plug until after I set my timing. The engine runs fine regardless of not unplugging the gray connector. Should I go back and reset the timing anyway and disconnect the plug this time? If so...why? It runs just fine as is.
Yes, you should remove the spout. If you do not remove the spout you are not really setting the base timing, the computer may be adjusting the timing and you will not be getting an accurate reading with the timing light.
Yes, go back and disconnect the spout connector. By not taking it out you really didnt set your timing right. When you take it out it lets the timing change without the computer compensating for the change. When you take it out you will notice a drop in RPMs, because your timing is going from upper 20s ATDC to lower teens.
