So I know when setting up the timing gears on the 292 you set the dots away from each other 12 pins apart. I just got a rebuilt 292 in my truck and I cant get the timing set right. Will the engine run if the timing gears are not set right? I would imagine not. I have tried setting it at the factory recommended 6 degrees and it doesnt run real well. No matter what I do with the timing(retard/advance) the truck will stall out. The truck idles fine when I have the timing set in the middle point. I can rev it up fine also, but if I floor it it will bog down big time(almost stall). The carb is new and still running factory settings. Any recommendations?
