Re: trouble with 1993 transplanted engine in 1965
This is a regualr HO 5.0 the engine timing came striaght from the book. To time you just unplugged the spout located next to the fire wall on the passenger side. Of course you wait till the car is warm up. shut it off and unplug the spout crank back up and adjust. Shut off, plug up spout and crank back up. Timing calls for 10 degrees before top dead center for regular gas. You can cheat but it mite start pigging. If you get around 14 dgrees and so forth. Again striaght from the book. I have read about if the cam gets change and you switch to fuel injection to use the 351 timing scheme but that should not apply here.
