Crank the distributor around,take it out and step on it,keep advancing the distributor till it just starts pinging a little,then back timing down till it just stops pinging,now lock it down and drive it.
If it starts hard when warm after this then maybe play with advance curve kit.So you can lower your initial timing for hot starts.
But I've never had to recurve a distributor and I allways max my total timing.
