paraphrasing... "Look at the sticker under the hood for the correct timing figures"
Some bastige has repainted my car at some point and very thoughtfully removed any signs of a sticker under the hood on my car. Hence I have no idea what degrees from TDC +/- I might need and at what revs/idlespeed this needs to be.
Right now the car is dieseling, running quite hot, backfiring, refusing to idle at a reasonably low RPM, and just generally seeming to be telling me it's out of whack in the iginition dept. If my guesstimates are wrong I'm more than happy to hear anyone elses. I just thought the timing was a good place to start
What idle speed and timing setting do I need ??
cheers in anticipation !

I will have too look at the other stuff when I get a chance. I hope this will give you some info at least....

for the record I had 10 deg ATDC.... suffice to say that probably fixed all the ills previously mentioned, though I'm still looking for more reasons just in case. I've had too much experience with cars that have been 'fixed' by shadetree mechanics in the past.... the things people do to cars !
