Get a timing light. A generic 12volt strobe light bulb one without the adjustable advance delay knob on the back will do fine without any added confusion or MSD multiple spark issues some of the lower quality adjustable ones have and hook it up to the number one spark plug wire according to the instructions.

You can clip the 12 volt supply wire to one of the fuses on the left rear relay panel thats hot while the ignition is on and the ground clip to a left side motor mount bolt or whatever works.

Without a timing light you're just guessing. The stock specs are on a sticker on the bottom of the engine lid or in the owners manual.
