I have an '84 Eldorado, with the same engine. The timing is set after the engine is warmed up, running at 800 RPM or less. You must first disconnect the green connecter behind the distributor near the firewall. The setting is 10 degrees before top dead center (10 DEG BTDC). Although on an older car like this you'll find you get better performance by advancing it a little more. I set mine about 12-13 deg BTDC. Then don't forget to re-connect the green connector.
