Factory setting was 2 degrees advanced, but most ran far better at 4-6 degrees. Limit on timing is how far you can go without hearing any detonation when you "get on it" under a load. When you reach that point, back off a few degrees. Advancing the timing lights the fuel in the cylinders early. At speed, the time it has to fully burn is very short. The sooner you light it, the better the chance that all fuel is converted into usable energy instead of going out the exhaust. The limiting factor in this is fuel quality as most available fuels are nowhere near the quality they were when your engine was produced.

I have a 1985 plymouth gran fury and the headlights stop working after hitting a bump. What is the lightly cause?

Likely cause is a bad ground. Check connections at the bulb. Grab wires and wiggle them around with lights on looking for them to come on or off.

Where is the ignition module at on my 1987 plymouth gran fury which is a 318 automatic?

On The late 80's gran fury The ignition module was part of the computer that is attchced to the air cleaner. I have seen them on some of the very early 80 cars and they were on the passenger inner fender under the hood. But if you have a big black box on your air cleaner with a bunch of wires going to it it was part of that. Hope this helps.
