Set the ignition timing using a a dial advance timing light. For your 302 with a "268" cam, set initial timing to about 12 to 16deg at idle. The mechanical timing should advance to a max of 32 to 36deg at high rpm. Vacuum advance should add 10 to 15 deg of vacuum timing at high vacuum part throttle cruise. (hiway cruising) .
