    For sure.

    I am not going into details on this because I found this article on the subject:

    http://www.britishv8.org/Articles/TuningForTempCon...

    Having owned a few pre ecm cars I noticed timing can have a pretty large impact on several things and one was how hard the cooling system was working or how hard it was for the heater to get warm during the winter.

    To a degree yes but I've never seen timing being off causing an overheating issue. If it's off that much that the engine isn't running well that does also effect how the fan and waterpump work and that will effect temperature.

    The timing can make the idle RPM's increase or decrease and that would affect engine temperature.

    If the cooling system is marginal it can. Retarded ignition timing will cause the engine to run hotter.

    It may do but not much. Do you mean ignition timing or valve timing?

      Yeah, it's Ignition timing that I have asked for temperature effect.
