I want to measure the o2 sensor voltage as well, hope to do that tomorrow.
Try about 10-12 initial timing, and the total timing of 36* all in by 3000 rpms. You might have to get an advance curve kit for the distributor. Here is another article on tuning your HEI and setting your timing. http://www.crankshaftcoalition.com/w...EI_distributor
