You should be able to find it on the sticker on the front of the valve cover.

I know the 380 is TDC at idle with the vacuum line disconnected.

Benzmac,

Thanks for the info, I looked on the sticker and it says 16 degrees @ 600 - 750. This can't be right!?! Seems way too advanced, if I set the timing at 10 degrees I get some pre-ignition at full throttle acceleration. Any input on the sticker? Oh yeah, I did havew the vacuum disconnected when I set it.

Thanks again

Matt
