you either dont have very good anti freeze or you need a battery with more cranking amps. you should also try putting grease(not wd40 or other lubes that come in a can) around your pulleys where the belt runs through because they could be freezing up and sticking together. More Info: Engine Cranks over fine, Fuel Pump appears to be working, Engine just will not fire, when it starts to warm up outside, no problem starts right up. Problem shows up when vehicle sits outside and weather is cold and damp overnight. The problem was the coil. It had a slight crack in the body and it was arcing to the frame. Suspect that when it was cold and damp it could not generate enough spark to get the engine to fire.

4 degrees is a little low for most Chevy v8's. when you put it in drive, the rpm's go down and the timing pulls back a little more. could be more like 0-2 degrees when in gear. try working in a range from 8-16 btdc and see how it runs.
