the book and tag say 14 deg, it pings under light load and up hills. I had to back it off to about 10 and it barely doesnt ping but I feel a noticable decrese in responsivness.
Recurve the distributer with a spring kit or just deal with it? Has anyone here recurved a 302 of this non-vintage vintage with good results?
I read a past post that briefly touched on a timing crank gear from an early 351 to restore some milage/performance. I would love a little more info on that if anyone has any or has done it.

The camshaft timing on most seventies emission engines was six degrees retarded.
