I installed a new Edelbrock 2102 cam in my 69 350 engine.

After break-in, I want to set the timing correctly.

Should I follow the GM recommended 4deg / at 600 rpm in drive that's on the core support label????

I don't see anything on setting timing on this new cam from Edelbrock...

Any guidance would be appreciated.....

Thanks....

do a search, lotsa discussions on this. Generally, it's pretty much accepted that most of our engines, even stock ones, want more than the factory suggested initial timing, my "not too far from stock" 327 likes 18 degrees! One thing tho... total timing (initial + mechanical advance) needs to stay between 32 and 38. Often we will need to "recurve" our distributors to limit the amount of mechanical advance so we can run more itiitial timing. More initial timing will improve idle quality and low rpm throttle response and power.
