Just swapped in a 351w carb Into my 86 foxbody and for some reason the timing isn't advancing under acceleration . It is mildly built. Any help on why this might be happening or what causes this?

Ok, from what I remember about vacuum advance on carb'd cars there are two types, find out what type of advance your distributor uses. It is vacuum advance right?
