That engine should be set at TDC however there is no reason you couldn't go advanced a few degrees unless you hear detonation when you do that.
I wouldn't go much above 4-6 degrees though. Make sure the fly weights under the rotor move freely and the vacuum advance is not leaking. Either can alter performance.

How do I remove the ignition switch cylinder on a 1969 Chevrolet Nova


The ignition switch is in the column. To take it out, put your car key in the ignition and turn it. You will see a little hole where you can insert something like a jewler's pick and the ignition switch will come right out.

Trying to set timing on 77 chev nova with a v6 the battery keep dying every time i try to crank it.


Looking at the crank shaft pulley, you should see a timing mark on the front gear cover and then there will be marks on the pulley. Line up these marks using a ratchet and socket on the front crankshaft pulley bolt. Next remove the distributor cap and look at the rotor button and determine which spark plug the button is pointing at. Find exactly which engine you have in this car. 1977 novas came with a straight 6 and a v8. If a v6 has been installed you need to know which one as the chevy engines have very different firing orders. You need to know the firing order to check the timing correctly. Be sure the firing order is right before going any further.
