The timing should be set at 6 BTDC. Be sure to set the dwell first, then the timing. Hope this helps.

The engine is a 200 CID straight six, the firing order is 153624...
Just pop the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine while you watch the rotor.
How I can determine which hole in the distributor is assigned to the #1 plug wire.
Pull the number one plug. Turn the engine over slowly (with a wrench) while holding your finger over the plug hole. When the air builds (a lot of) pressure you are coming up to the number one spot on the distributor. (the rotor will point to the location of the #1 hole in the distributor.)
Quick methods to disable the engine I have seen people do on the classics:
Close the points by loosening the set screw
Pull the rotor cap
Connect a wire from the coil to ground. (effectively closes the points. Can damage the coil if key is left on.)
Pull the main ignition wire
And there are some tricks at the starter solonoid involving the ballast resistor bypass that is used to provide a hotter spark while cranking. (Two little wires at the starter solonoid - one is crank the other is the ballast bypass.)
Might give those a look-see. Best of luck (rememeber rated this help).

Testimonial: "This has been very helpful!! Thank you!"
SOURCE: where is fuel filter located
The fuel filter is located inside the inlet fitting to the carburetor(s) It is very small, about the diameter of a large magic marker and about 3/4" long, you will need the special fuel line fitting wrenches to remove the fuel line and then the barrel adapter that is screwed into the carb inlet/bowl (1"), if you don't use them you can destroy the fittings. Below is a picture.
