First off I am not sure if you did the cam break in but you should use lucus breakin fluid run for 20 mins at a good rpm. Either way the best way to set the timing is run it right at 34 thats where it needs to be. You dont want the idle advance to low around 10-14 is best
When setting the timing get the timing light on there and pinch vacuum advance get a idea where the timing is at you will need a timing light with dwell to do it the right way you will set the timing light up and turn the # XXXXX it up as the idle goes up until fully advanced you will want the # XXXXX be 34 and the line to be right on 0 on the mark off the timing cover
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Danny
Yes i used lucas oil break in 2000 rpm or so. I should start the car put the light on the balancer and advance it
have the vac advance off plugged then run it up to 3000-3400 rpms using the dwell on the timing light start raising it up until you get to 34 and the mark is on 0
got it thanks.
