I got the correlation.

I took the SD over to Dieselnut14's place over in Sea Cliff.

The SD is set perfectly at 15 ATDC using the RIV device.

The pulse timing device showed 13.5 BTDC.

At the NJ GTG, he measured six different vehicles, all with 616 and 617 engines. The highest reading was 12 and the lowest was 6. Clearly, everyone was running with late timing.

So, my best estimate of the proper timing with the pulse device is just about 14 BTDC.
