You won't find many folks re-curving their 60 or 72 HP engine distributors to get a better jump off the line! I am curious why you feel the need to re-curve your distributor?

Wes:

I have a 3/4 race cam, the whole rotating assembly including the clutch were balanced. I used the larger M38a1 clutch assembly.

Use a F-head exhaust manifold.

Iíve ported both intake and exhaust manifolds. Also ground and the polished the inside of the intake manifold.

I have the Weber 2v complete with waterproof horn.

The points were replace by a pertronix Hall effect ignitor.

Cylinder Compression +/- 1 PSI, 90PSI each cylinder.

Runs happily at 4,500rpm.

So, Iíve engaged in Thousands of upgrades for ~13% increase HP. For me itís not a stretch for me to see what I can do to help the torque out.

Iím currently waiting to get a picture library set up. As Iíd like to show my project.

Seems like you are replicating some of the famous jeep mountain and desert racers of the 50's. Good luck.
