Well its clear to me that Mr. inspector1 does not know what the fudge he is looking at.

Its a three dimensional curve. RPM on one axis, engine load on another, and timing advance on the third. To find the timing number you find the intersection of RPM and load then read the timing value. Its simple but you obviously have never seen one before.

My real point was that its not easy to get an exact number.

But just for Mr. inspector1 here is a picture of a dog. Im sure he can relate to that better.
