Doc here,

If it's a standard (under 300 hp) 327, the timing is:
  • TDC for manual trans.
  • 4 BTDC For Automatic.
  • Point gap is 19 thousands.
  • Dwell angle is 28 to 32.
  • Idle 700 RPM's

Set your points, Check your timing, then set your Dwell angle at 2000 RPM's, THEN recheck the timing, Dwell will effect a change in timing.
