1923 T Bucket equipped with a B&M blown Chevy 383 Stroker
Wondering the best base timing to go off of for a 383 Stroker. Recently replaced my intake manifold gasket and to do so had to remove the distributor. I have the distributor set to be retarded, on the safe side, but the engine still will not start, and every once in a while while cranking a loud pop will happen and fuel will shoot out of a barrel in the carb. Just wondering either what I might be doing wrong or what anybody has as their base timing for a 383 stroker. The engine is also equipped with a blower, though I am not 100% sure how much that factors in to the timing. Thanks !
