12 degree`s BTDC base, 36 degrees in by 3000 RPM.

I agree with the above as to the 'Total' advance of 36 degrees in at 3000 RPM. Could possibly go up to 38. If you experience any pinging under a load, drop down 2 degrees at a time until the ping goes away. You may actually be higher than 12 degrees at the initial advance since you do not have a vacuum advance on your distributor. The current setting of 4 degrees is much too low for good performance. Good luck and ENJOY!!! :D
