I am looking up the motors in a parts manual right now and there is a 3.8L V6 VIN A, 307 or 5.0L olds V8 VIN Y, and a 350 or 5.7L diesel VIN N. No chevy small block. The 8th digit of your VIN # is your motor.

SOURCE: adjust timing on 1985 olds delta 88 307 engine

Timing set a 20 degrees as factory specified.

Keep Backing off of timing 1 degree at a time until you don't have a pinging during acceleration.

Laging valve timing can not be fixed by simply advancing the ignition timing.

Check to see that you have less than 8 degrees of valve timing and you will be ok.

Hope this tip helps
