Well, just got done installing the new plugs...
I decided to go with the AC Delco R45TS gapped at a slightly fat .045 WITH a light coat of anti-seize on the threads <- see I was listening grumpy

while I had all the plugs out I turned the motor over by hand and located TDC... I went ahead and marked the damper where the "aftermarket" timing pin pointed (this one is between the water pump and power steering pump, NOT directly beneath the water pump) I may try to find a timing tape, but one of the guys on the forum suggested setting timing with a vacuum gauge. I've never done it that way before, but I'll give it a go! I picked up a vacuum gauge while I was out today(any excuse to buy a new tool right?)

Does anyone have a good procedure for setting timing with a vacuum gauge?

Then after that I have to properly set the Edelbrock 1405. I read somewhere one of the guys set his carb with a vacuum gauge as well.

Does anyone have a good procedure for adjusting a 1405 with a vacuum gauge?

Words are a lot like toothpaste... Once its out of the tube,
there's no getting it back in...
