timing issue

I just got my 350 running in my 68. I havent put a timing light on it but with some help from a buddy, we got to run and idle and restart decent. Only problem is my dist vac advance is right against manifold runner. Dist is an HEI and manifold is edelbrock performer. Could I have the dist in a tooth off.

Re: timing issue

yes, but... to fix it, you need to move each wire clockwise one position on the cap, then push the vac advance cam back toward the firewall exaclt one wire positition on the cap.

Did I get it right this time? been having a backward weeek!

If the wires are correctly indexed in the cap (#1 wire where it belongs), you're a tooth off (which is 27* of distributor housing rotation) - pull the distributor, rotate the rotor clockwise a tooth, and re-stab it; that will give you more clearance to the intake runner and leave the wires correctly indexed. The pic below is a points distributor, but it shows the correct position of the vacuum advance can:
