[QUESTION=KONADOK] If 25-30 degrees advanced is not unusual, how do I time the engine using a timing light? Does it mean I cannot use the timing pointer on the drivers side? Do I not worry about where the marker is and time it "manual" (retard to barely running and then advance to a good idle).

My other problem is that the distributor will only rotate about 12-14 degrees before it hits the accelerator cable mount on the firewall (I hope that's not a biggy since I would have to relocate the pedal assembly to change it).
