I need the dwell setting for the points on my 396 car. I had a crane XR-1 module conversion but it gave nothing but problems (erratic fire after running about a minute and then shut off completely). Well I bought a new set of points and I want to just get it back up and running. Thus I need the dwell setting for a 1968 camaro 396. I have a different cam and the timing is more advanced than stock (15-20 initial). I don't know if this makes a difference?
Thanks,
Scott

The dwell setting is 30 degrees plus or minus two degrees. Set your points by turning the allen wrench clockwise to the final setting not unscrewing. Your adjustment will hold better that way due to slack in the threads.
