We just used chalk, we be poor kids, no money, LOL. Somebody always had a pack of matches. Of course, U could time by ear, be close, LOL, if somewhere and no analyzer available, ahhh, the simple old days. Distributor just a PITA to get to on Cheby, not in front like Dodge.When I rebuilt it, I painted lines on the balancer so that I wouldnt have to soap stone it every time. 5 degree increments. 12btdc idle with Total advance at about 38.
Match book or rolling papers required to set a dual point. Adjust each side to 32/33 dwell, for combined around 29. Runs so smooth. Tried a pertronix for a week and took it back off and sold it.
Boy, the things we did and threw away, and not park somewhere, etc.,. Miss those days, just a simpler life. Last car I had before Military was 68 Cutlass Supreme, Ragtop with the 350 jetfire, smooth riding ride for sure. Should have barned that car, duh, dumb BOIRD.
