From the book for a 1978 and on the timing specs are:

10 deg +/- 2 deg ATDC at 1000 +/- 50 RPM with the hose connected.

26 deg +/- 4 deg BTDC at 4000 RPM with the hose disconnected.

This isn't where mine ended up being. Because with these numbers it ran like CRAP! I set it to where it runs the best. I wonder if somewhere along the line my dist was removed and installed one tooth off or maybe I have some other issue I need to sort out to get those numbers, I don't know.

BTW: I used the tach on the dash to set at 4000RPM. Sometimes you can pick up a manual on Ebay. That's where I got mine.

Good Luck!
