that dist is mechanical advance !!!!!
you really can't time it correctly without a timing gun / light
set it to about 14deg advance when you do get a light on it ,they run good right about there ...
get one with a dail on the back ,set the dail on 14
put a mark on your harmonic balancer where 0 is with some white paint ,so that you can see it then while its running move the distributor untill the gun light flashes on the mark lined up with the timing pointer on the engine ....
