Re: 347 stroker startup and timing
To find what your engine likes for initial ignition timing get the engine up to temperature, increase initial timing 2*, shut down and allow to heat soak for a minute then restart. If it starts easily, bump up 2* more, heat soak, restart. Keep doing this until the engine either drags the starter or coughs through the carb. Then back off 2*. The only time I've seen this not work was with a large duration cam of 300* advertised.
