    It should have instructions on the decal on the radiator shroud cover. If you can't see it I can photograph my 1980 if that works.

    I hope you can see it. If not I have a higher res version. Just let me know via PM. Timing must be set at exactly the RPM shown. This is unlike most other cars from the era which specified idle or near idle setting.
