Will I finally decided to refresh the motor this year, but didn't know what the timing was set at before.

There is no advance in the distributor. Right now I have it at 27deg, I think it needs more, but didn't know how far everyone goes. 32,36,38???

Thanks
Kurt

According to PMC owners manual, timing is 6 degrees BTC at 600rpm, breaker point dwell is 24 to 29 degrees.
