How To Set Timing On Chevy 305 ? Can'T Find Sweet Spot Timing On Stock 305

Geesch! hate used distributors. Last one I had years ago apparently was modified by a racer and was all messed up. Replaced it with one we pulled from a yard and the engine ran fine. I usually set static at 8-10 with 34-36 total all in by 2500. Many most likely do it a different way. I would suspect the springs and weights for certain. Good place to look first.Was this a fresh rebuild or a running engine that you are fooling with? Might change the thinking!!
