Power Timing Secrets With Uncle Tony – This Lesson In Old School Mechanic’n Is Awesome

If there is one thing that Uncle Tony has brought to the automotive realm of YouTube it is the idea that there’s a LOAD of stuff old school mechanics know and young mechanics have likely never heard of or practiced before. This video may be his best example yet. What you are about to see is a study in “Power Timing”. This is a practice that has been part of wrenching on old cars for as long as old cars have existed. Power Timing is not about a light, not about the marks, not about the precision of doing things by the book. It is about making an old engine wake up and act much more like it did when it was fresh. Its’s also about understanding the dynamics of what is happening inside an engine, especially those with lots of miles.

Tony is very careful to tell people that this is an art, albeit one based in science, but one that requires you to use your senses to determine things that are otherwise dedicated to being determined by the hard numbers in new or fresh engines. From understanding what the exhaust sounds like, what the engine sounds like, and what the throttle response is.

Many of you that read BangShift are highly experienced old school wrenchers. Maybe none of this is new for you. BUT, many of you are also new to wrenching and engines. Listen to this gas and grease soaked sage tell you about Power Timing. It’s cool as hell.
