I just bought a 1975 Coupe de Ville,
and I'm wondering if some kind soul could help me!
Does this 500CID engine have points? I want to set the timing and I cannot find the emissions control sticker that chiltons refers to. I have been running it on 87 octane, so I wonder what I should set the timing to for optimal performance.
The exhaust kinda stinks of gas, if thats any indication of the state of timing its currently in...
I bought this car to cruise around with my blues band in, if it comes to guitars & tube amps I know what I'm talking about, but I'm just learning with this car!
Ok, so I got the information on the timing, normally it should be 6 before TDC
and its HEI, but is this still what it should be set for for 87 octane?
Also, which hoses should be disconnected before setting the timing?
