Set the ignition timing with a timing light, it works better to use the light with the engine running. I don't think you said if you have a magneto or Battery Ignition Unit. :)

In my opinion, these Cubs are pretty easy to keep going. Another 40 years is a piece of cake. I would bet that the last day we have gasoline readily available for purchase to all of us, there will be a bunch of Cubs still in operation.
