Although the standard setting in the Ford manual for a 289 is 6°BTC the 289 HP was 12° BTC for both std and Auto trans. Retarding the spark to 6°will run the engine hotter.

Why? do you do that much parallel parking? The manual has a nice, connected to the tires, feel. If you don't do it yourself you would probably spend less money on a whole new rack and pinion...

Do you have a black ground lead going from the alternator to the block, and to the regulator attachment bolt? Is that wire broken? You need to ground the regulator and not rely on the sheet metal.
