what ignition are you running???

In general..... using an adjustable advance timing light, set it to 36*. Rev the engine to...3500pms while checking the timing... With the light set at 36* and the engine at 3500 you want to set the timing mark on the Balancer at TDC mark and "0" advance on the timing tab....
