Default Maytag runs and hits hard

Hello guys I have three model 92 engines restored and two of them run great. The third is a 1929 long frame that runs ok but it is a little harder to start and when it runs it hits really hard and is loud when it hits. Every time the muffler pops it is loud. Is this the timeing ?

I was going to say, timing, that's about all I can think of. It sounds like it may be a bit too advanced.

Points gap correct? Should be .020", plug gap .025. If set too close, timing wil be advanced. If the points mount plate has shifted, then it needs to be re-set. Contact Mark Shulaw, and send him your mag mount assembly (Plate and all. he can set it properly. Not quite a job you can do at home. He is here on the Stak
