    In response to technitom

,ITS important to understand how and why things work,but To give a quick answer, generally you use a vacuum gauge on a STOCK engine to set timing by hooking it up to plenum vacuum , set the idle to normal idle speed (usually 670rpm-850rpm)and adjust timing to max vacuum reading, this DOESN'T,T ALWAYS result in the best possible timing but it will generally be fairly close on a DEAD STOCK ENGINE

ARCing like that can be the result of improper instal on the carbon button or failure to use a silicon sealant grease on the rubber insulator washer that holds it in place under the coil in the cap.
