thermal time valve

A valve which senses temperature, typically the temperature under the hood, and gives full vacuum advance when the temperature is below 10° above this temperature, the thermal time valve allows the distributor vacuum to be controlled by the thermal vacuum switch; includes a delay of typically 20 seconds to allow full spark advance for better hot starting
