I'm pretty sure that all General Motors V8 engines use the same dwell setting. Most likely you have a distributor with the little pull up door and points with the Allen screw adjuster. The setting is 28 - 32 degrees dwell so just set it as close to 30 degrees dwell as you can.

what is the correct torque for a Toyota Corolla engine - 4E-FE, 1st generation engine?

I would bet no, it did not. The 1973 Oldsmobile engine was painted gold and the Pontiac engine was not.

In 1979 Pontiac did not make available any 455 (cubic inch) engine. The largest available was a 400 4bbl in the Pontiac Trans Am (220 net horsepower). Also the "rocket engine" description was only applicable to the Oldsmobile Division. The 455 Rocket Engine (Oldsmobile) was discontinued in 1977 where the largest engine was the 403 cubic inch Rocket Engine V8 rated at 185 net horsepower available on the 98 (a 350 cubic inch was standard) and the Toronado. It was also sold to the Buick division and available on the Riviera.
