Best Answer

0 degrees with timing connector unplugged which can be located under the glove box taped to main harness or under hood at firewall behind plastic cover at passenger side

Assuming your question is 'how to adjust the timing'...

on most older cars with a distributor it the timing can be adjusted by turning the distributor itself. Even just turning the distributor a little at a time with the engine idling you can get it good enough by ear. Then give it a test drive. It the car sounds fine but is sluggish accelerating advance the timing (by twisting distributor) in the direction that speed the idle.

hopefully that helps :)
