Re: timing specifications 351 windsor

You sure ??? O/K then I"ll stick my head out...Say 12mm infront of tdc it should atleast be fireing..You can get some stick on stuff that shows degrees...Another way is mark on ballancer where you want max timing, then mark..Sat you want 28* total max?? Then mark 28*..Then dajust timing at 3000 rpm or where max advance is in rpm range..This is the best way to tune on h.p engine as setting at idle you don't know what is happening and relying on correct settings in dissy....Or do both and check with timing light on both marks???
