Hello. I have a 79 f 150 with a 460 under the hood. Does anyone have any idea what the initial timing is supposed to be set at? I got it a 10 degrees btdc now. Someone at one time told me 13 degrees but I dont know. Also, does an MSD multiple spark box help at all for throttle response? Does it affect where timing should be set? Thanks.

I do belive that some of that is dependant on altitude. I am at 4,500 and I set mine at ten. I then had to back it off a little because my compression is to high and it pings like a sunof a gun. but when I turned the crank over to ten, then droped the distibuter in and she fired right up.
