On an older vehicle like this , would start at 10 degrees BTDC; vaccum line to distributor plugged while setting timing.If it pings, back it off 2 degrees, if it does not ping under load, add 2 degrees. According to the repair manual timing should be 8 BTDC (6 degrees BTDC for calif. emissions and high alt.)
