It was a early 70's 302 with low compression. I didn't have a timing light and I had to remove my distributor. When I reinstalled it I timed it by ear. It started, sounded and drove fine so I deceided it was probably okay. I was almost home and it started running rough. It ended up being way too andvanced and had blown the head gasket between two cylinders.
