randy

Hey folks,
I have a 1967 camaro convertible that I bought in Feb 1967. I had the engine built and put headers and a "ittle " bit of a cam on it. now it doesn't have that spin the back wheels power it used to have. I had someone build the quadra jet and had an electronic module put in the dist. I just bought a timing light and guess I'll start there -- anybody know what the setting should be
Thanks
