Ok I know there are a lot of threads on timing but my question is where should I set the timing I have a 67 with a 250 a hei and a 2 barrel from stovebolt. I have the timing set at 4 btdc and I have a horrible dead pedal if I go a little past idle it just doesn't go. I thought timing might be an issue but if you have any other suggestions put them out there I need all the help I can get
Thanks
