Any help with timing 351C with Cam?
#1
Looking for help on timing a 72 with a 351C and a Cam.  Not certain which cam is in it due to buying this from an estate, all I was told is that it is a roller cam. I do know it has close chamber heads.  Can anybody recommend to me where to set the timing on this beast?

With a timing light I would start at 14 degrees of initial and go from there. Some will say start lower, but it seems that the Cleveland likes more like 15-16 of initial and 36-38 when all in. So starting lower than that seems like a waste of time to me, but I guess no matter what it is as long as it doesn’t ping under a load is what matters. And you need to make sure your distributor is curved right.
