Greets,

Would someone be so kind as to post tune up specs for my '68 327/275. I borrowed my manual out and never got it back. I'm trying to set dwell with my meter and want to be sure it's right.

Thanks!

Cool

Heck, man, tune it by ear!

Go out and run the dog outa it and come back and adjust accordingly. Oh, and by the way bump the distributor until she kicks back a schosh on starting and then back it off a little. He, He, LOL.

Thats the way I always did it before good timing lights and dwell meters.

My base playing buddy never could get over me doing it that way. I told him I couldn't tune his base guitar by ear, but he could. To each his own.

And yes, I wished I had a Chiltons and I would be glad to tell you. pdq67

The service manual says set it 28-32 degrees, so you'll have to play with it.

Good luck!
