I have no idea what the time is, I was just driving it as is like the average joe.
It has a electronic HEI with vacuum and mechanical advance.
I was thinking I would set it for 12 to 8 degrees of initial advance and then I would have to look up what the total advance the 454 like to run it.
I don't think I am not going to mess with the timing until after I put the new intake manifold and carb on there. I will go out and check the timing after dark, but I don't plan on driving it any more as is if I can help it.

What is easier to change out metering rods on, the edelbrock 1405 or a Q-jet?
