My 350 dies when you put it in gear(automatic) it idles at 1100, it has a large hyd flat tappet cam 525 lift 110 lobe seperation 305 duration. A converter stall of 4000. The timing is at 14 deg. inital on tdc should it be at btdc? Is tdc my problem?

Re: timing too low???

timing is set at tdc.
that is a pretty healthy cam, and getting something like that to idle decent can be a chore. timing and carb adjustment need to be right on.
i'd try hooking the vacuum advance up to manifold vacuum and turning the idle speed down a bit to get started.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
