F100 tune-up specs

I just got a 1976 Ford F100 with inline-6 motor which needs a bit of a tune-up. Can anyone help me with these specs please?

I'm in the process of moving, so all of my books are packed away right now. But if no one else has come along and replied, i'll dig a book out when I get home tonight.

Thanks Larry.

I'd appreciate it.

I noticed that it's temp gauge doesn't work but when looking around on the motor I couldn't find where the sender is located.

Look under the manifold toward the rear of the engine for the temp sender. Base timing is around 6-8. Factory specs are just a guideline on any vehicle this old simce gasoline formulation is nothing like it was then. My 72 300-6 is real finnicky about the timing. Factory spec is 8 but it pings on 8. Set it back to 4 and it has a noticable loss of power. It has to be 6 degrees advance with very little tolerance.

Any chance any of you know the valve clearance specs? They sound slightly noisy so I just want to go over it to make sure.
