Post Hissing, Advance

Well, thanks to your guy'ses help, I got the Nova running.

I found TDC, put all the plugs back in (no easy task - - at least for me), and took the car for a spin. It was fast!

But it still idles bad, and now it makes a slight hissing sound.

Also, (this will probably qualify for the dumbest question of the year award) but when I'm doing initial timing I should be looking above the timing marker, which would mean I have to add 14 degrees to any number I get there. This is since the timing marker goes from 14 degrees to 0 degrees in the middle (and then to like 12 degrees ATDC at the bottom of the marker).
