A sloppy worn timing chain.
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.

Ignition Timing Advancers are mechanical 'bolt-on' pieces to advance the ignition timing of the engine to a specific degree of timing advance. The majority of its application for these parts are for motorcycles or on racing applications.
The ignition timing is non-adjustable. It is strickly electronic, and you cannot change it. The valve timing is controlled by the timing belt. If it has jumped time, you have to remove the timing cover to access the belt, replace it, and set it to the correct specifications.
18436572 same as all Chevy v-8s that is the firing order, not the ignition timing. timing varies between vehicles. a sticker under hood will give timing info, or a Haynes or Chilton service manual
in most cases the term keeps running means it spits sputters and pings till it complete shuts down. this is a symptom of the timing be retarded to much. i would suggest checking you timing remember to disconnect the computer control to the distributer before checking the timing, not the power wire the other. if the car actually is running with the ignition off the the ignition switch is bad.
6 degrees before top dead center
