just got a new msd ready to run distributor, installed it, fired right up. My question is what do i set the timing at. stock motor, holly d'pumper carb in a daycruiser. I ask the guy at the parts house because he seem pretty knowlegeable about fords, and he replied that since it was for a boat he would not have a clue. i do know that the motor is left hand rotation since shopping for a new distributor, does that mean the motor is really running backwards from normal rotation. also am betting that my motor is tired and will need rebuilt or replaced soon, so do i have to replace it with a marine 460 or just any run of the mill 460? i know that these are probably dumb questions, but i gotta ask. any help would be appreciated.
thanks in advance
