TDC help please.

Recommended Posts

New some help good people. The specs for my monte has the timing at 6 degrees BTDC. I drop the distributor at 12 degrees BTDC after a new intake I got it started but I had to advance the distributor even more to keep it from stalling, now it's turned, which seems to me too far counter clock wise. I'm going to get it back to TDC. Now should I drop the Distributor at 12 degrees BTDC and adjust the rotor to compensate the 12 degrees or should I still point it at the number one spark plug. Or another thing. Should I just use 6 degrees BTDC and drop the dizzy and point number one at the 1st cylinder? 

Thanks

I usually get it at TDC and drop in distributor pointing at #1 terminal. that way you can adjust either way and still have the distributor in correct area on intake.post-259-0-61935100-1474727657_thumb.jpg

I remember when I first changed the intake and hand cranked it took TDC. I had a hard time starting it. Once I did get it statred, it wasn't for long. So, of course I made sure It was on the compression stroke and I stopped it at 12 BTDC and it started. When I tried retarded the timing to get it close to 6 BTDC it would stall. It was sitting for a week or two after the new intake, maybe the carb was acting up. I'm going to repeat the process and drop it in at TDC and see what happens. 

I appreciate the help!
