Question 77 camaro distributor setting

I'm trying to set the timing in my 77 camaro. Think I ma pretty close, but would like some advice. When I crank the engine I get kind of like a back fire out of the exhaust. Am I pretty close to being on time to start or am I way off.

Re: 77 camaro distributor setting

Back off your distributor. Turn it CCW a bit. Once you get it started, recheck the timing. If you have the 350 motor, the timing should be around 6-8 degs. BTDC.
