I have a friend trying to sort out the motor on his 70 nova. Has trouble getting the car to start, and seems to be fouling as lot of plugs. He is telling me the initial timing is set at 25 degrees. So his total timing would be in the 45 degree range? (No vacuum advance being used) Motor is setup with cam for the 3000-700 RPM range from what I understand. To me that's for drag racing. Do these numbers so right for drag setup cars? That's a lot more initial advance than I've ever used. I'm thinking he has a racing setup and it's not very friendly for the street use he's trying to use it for. Thanks for any insight.
