You need to find someone that has an advance timing light. With it they can set the total advance at 35 degrees at 2,000 RPM. That will be your best performance setting.
It is best to start at 8 degrees at 600 rpm for auto and 6 degrees at 800 rpm for manual. The total timing should be around 33 degrees.
A 1976 Chevy did not have a points ignition, but that has nothing to do with the correct timing. You will find that the engine runs best with about 8-12 degrees BTDC.
6, to 8 degrees advanced, or BTDC., will work best.
There are contributing factors, however, about 6 degrees advanced or BTDC., should work best.
Try 10 degrees for your base timing and tweeak 2 to 4 degrees either way trying diff settings till get best performance
Depends upon the year, and which 396 it is, but, 4, to 8 degrees advanced, or BTDC, should make it run best.
The best time to replace a 2004 Chevy Venture timing chain is when it becomes weak or broken. It is not something that needs replaced routinely.
Anywhere from 4 to 8 degrees BTDC / BEFORE TOP DEAD CENTER. Were ever it runs it's best and starts good when hot.
Before, and it really depends on what you are calling "modified" if you put a "hotter" cam in, sometimes the stock timing won't do it justice. You have to play with the timing and see what works best. Usually, advancing it 1 or 2 degrees gives the best result.
You can usually start out about 8 degrees BTDC with no pinging. Increase 1 or 2 degrees at a time during normal operation until you hear pinging and then back off 2 degrees. On a dragstrip, increase timing 1 or 2 degrees at a time until best mph is observed.
The best way to find 6 degrees on a 1969 Olds 350 Rocket timing tab is with a diagram which can be found in a repair manual. The timing markings are on the pulley.
4, to 6 degrees advanced, or BTDC.
6 degrees BTDC.
On most stock SB 350s the timing should be fine at 6-8 degree's Before Top Dead Center AKA BTDC. However if the cam is not stock you may want to contact the cam's manufacturer for the best timing suitable for your cam. I personally set the timing until I obtain the best performance I want to achieve. , EzForJesus If you are looking for the best performance possible, get a timing light that will check your timing at full advance. Start off at about 40 degrees total timing (engine running above 2800 rpm) and vary it up or down a few degrees until peak performance is found. Best accomplished at a drag strip on test'n'tune night.
It is possible that the harmonic balancer has spun.check the rubber around the balancer for cracks or decay.If so replace balancer...
You have to use a scan tool and set it plus or minus 2 degrees of 0
If it is a v8 engine ? It will run it's best at 8 degrees BTDC. If it pings under a load then move it back to 6 degrees BTDC.
Timing should always be set without vacuum hooked up. Initial timing should be around 12-15 BTDC at idle - around 24-26 BTDC at 3000 RPM's - and around 36-38 BTDC at 3000 RPM's with vacuum hooked up. There's (3) stages to timing on sbc:10 degrees initial10 degrees mechanical advance (the weighted springs in the distributor)10 degrees vacuum advance These will vary depending on carb/intake/cam setups. Hope this helps!The lower the compression, the more timing you'll need. Could be up to 18 degrees at idle (42 degrees total.) I'd start at 38 degrees total and go up and down a little at a time until you find the best performance.That cam likes compression. The more the merrier. At least 10:1.
Around 40 degrees Celsius.
around 100 degrees Fahrenheit
best guess would be 25 horsepower.more with timing advance.maybe 35.
The best temperature for bacterial growth is around the same temperature as the human body, 98.6 degrees F (37 degrees C).
here the best answer i can give you on the timing of a 305 Chevy engine i seen timing on these engines from 0 to 13 btdc the best way to set the timing is to disconnect the est plug and start the enginge and very slowly turn the dis. and listen to the engine until it runs the smoothest then turn it off and reconnect the est plug and try restarting it it should start nicely if not then you need to readjust the dis. my 305 which is a 1985 is happy at 12deg. btdc. but is built up a little and no poluion bull on it Mine runs good at 8-10 BTDC
a 1997 Chevy Tahoe gets around 16 miles to the gallon highway and about 10 miles to the gallon around town that's about the best you get out of them.
