    Hey all! Trying to get my Falcon timed up and was wondering if anyone had the numbers on a 1963 stock 260 ci small block Ford with a 2 speed fordomatic tranny. I was told the dwell was 23 but I'm not 100% sure and would also like to know what the timing should be set at.

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    My book says 27 degrees dwell with 10degrees advance with an automatic and 6 degrees advance with a stick. .015 if you use a feeler gage on the points.

    I think most tune books called for 28/32 on the dwell for most of the Ford V8's in those years.
     
  3. Mine (Original Ford Book) says 27 degrees of dwell, .016 point gap, 6 degrees BTDC @ 500rpm for auto (4 degrees for stick) and 10 degrees max vacuum advance
