hey, what's the correct procedure for setting the ignition timing on an EL 5 litre? Are you supposed to put it into a particular mode? There's graduated marks on the balancer, from 0-30º, and I understand it's supposed to be set at 30, so does that mean you are supposed to line up 30º on the balancer with TDC on the timing case, or line up 0º? We set it to 30º, without putting it in any particular mode, and it seems to be pinging a little bit under load.

bridge the 2 left terminals on the diagnostics connector, then set the timing after revs have dropped
