... too retarded. 15-20 as others have said. double check you are measuring it correctly.

if you are using a DC coil be sure that you don't have a resistor plug or cap, they can be really touchy about that because they don't have as much power as magneto points.

based on your 'it popped once' comment i'm guessing its too retarded. thats usually what they do, then they foul the plug with raw fuel.
