Stock timing for a 1975 LTD 460;

14 Deg BTDC Vac.line disconnedted and plugged.

Note; Set at 600 RPM
Note; 49 states only. Calif.cars and ALL cars with 3.00 rear axle- 6 Degrees BTDC.

Note3; If there are any modifications to the motor,throw out these specs and just figure out where it runs best without knocking at all.
