The timing should be at 6 degrees for a non-turbo, with the distributor vacuum lines disconnected and plugged. It will be at 9 degrees for a turbo, with a test connector for idle setting grounded.
You can purchase a wrist strap that connects to a water pipe or other grounding surface and is connected to your wrist before you touch the computer. On the other hand...
