The specs are 10 degrees. 1st find the timing mark indicator on the front of the engine, clean it off so it is visible, 2nd find the timing mark on the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine(lower pulley), mark it (groove) with white chalk and wipe off excess, this will make it easier to see while engine is running. 3rd find the shorting plug for the distributor, should be on the left hand fender well up by the firewall, 2 wire connector with a grey or black plug stuck in it with no wires coming out. To set timing, hook up timing light, remove shorting plug and observe timing mark while engine is running, it should be steady at 10 degrees, if not loosen distributor lock bolt and rotate distributor until it does. It is very important that the shorting plug be removed, this is the only way to reach base timing (w/o computer). When finished reinstall shorting plug, ignition timing will be advanced by the computer automatically. Hope this helps, let me know.

Check gauges light on all the time. I replaced radiator cap and topped up coolant . Also checked and topped up engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid . All gauges show normal reading but the check...


The light says check gauges? This doesn't mean fluids are low. Look at the gauges, something is out of spec. A common one is the alternator, if the voltage drops below usually 12v, the light comes on.

302 v8 on a 76 ford bronco just rebuilt has


sounds like your timing is way off,if no timing gun and you dont have specs,loosen your distributer a bit and rev your engine to about3000 rpm and just listen to the engine while you slightly turn the distibuter until it is the smoothest sounding with no sputtering then tighten your distributer back up or pay the bucks get it timed at a shop its cheap
