Are you working on the 460 engine?
Okay that would be the 400, the 1979 came from the factory with electronic ignition and that means you do not have any points to set. Base ting is set at 12 degrees BTDC and the spark plug should be set at .042. When you set the base timing be sure to do it with the vacuum line removed from the vacuum advance unit on the distributor.
