There is no definite answer to that. The book will probably say 10* BTDC but I get the best performance and no pinging at 15-16*. I think the book is usually pretty conservative. This sounds old school, but you will get the best results by timing it to best idle, then backing it off a hair at a time if it starts hard.

1970!!! Geez... "0" degrees I think. Better call your local auto parts dealer and ask to be sure.

stock timing on a 400 small block Chevy 2/4 bbl engine is 4 degrees btdc. depending on how the engine is built however, i.e. rebuilt to stock or built for performance, the timing may be up to 8 degrees plus or minus tdc or more depending on valve timing and cam timing.

Check these things first. Is fuel filter stoped up ?? Is it running out of fuel ??Ignition module in the distributor is a common problem with the HEI / High energy ignition system. It will work for awhile and then stop when it gets hot.

Either 170 hp w/5.0L 4bbl, 190 hp w/5.0L 4bbl H.O., or 205 w/305 TPI.
