wj,
I wouldn't worry about where the timing is set. Just set it to where the car runs well, doesn't ping on acceleration, and starts readily when hot. Note the setting for future tune ups. 1971 was during the early stages of emissions requirements, and manufacturers (all of them) went to all kinds of bizarre lengths to make their cars comply. Some of this included retarding timing. Glad you got it running well!
