The engines with the type E carb have two different deflooder designs. The earlier one was a jet like thing that had a stip of metal that crossed the face. The strip went from one side to the other held in place by the gasket area. The other was the Gilson deflooder with a check ball like you will see in Ebay item #160466876160 I set my timing to be about 1/4" inch before TDC. You can go somewhat less if you want. Retarding the timing will calm them down but if you intend to put it to work get back towards 1/4" BTDC Mark
