i`m not sure about the timing because there`s either a straight 6 or the hurricane 4 engines for that year,carburated of course. if its misfiring, it could be due to the plug wires .they might be incorectly in stalled on the distributor.it could also be dirty fuel and/or air filters. i would check the filters first(air) ,then check to see if the plug wires are in the right firing order on the cap. if your still having problems let me know, i`ll see if i can help.thanks,walt
