CHEVY TUNE-UP SPECS

1992 Chevrolet S-10

Engine Performance problem
1992 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

I just acquired a trike (3 wheeled motorcycle) custom built from the running gear of a 1992 Chev S-10 2.8L V6 with 4 speed manual transmission. I can't find the tune-up specs (points, spark plug, and timing) settings anywhere.
Can you give me the tune-up specs and part numbers?
Thank you.

Thanks for the info, but I didn't find timing setting listed in the specs anywhere and I really need that as well.
I will look forward to your prompt reply.

Ignition timing: 10 degrees BTDC @ idle @ Neutral.
Procedure:
1. Set parking brake, block drive wheels and place transmission in Neutral. Warm engine to normal operating temperature. Turn A/C off (if equipped). Ensure SERVICE ENGINE SOON light is off.
2. Disconnect Tan/Black Electronic Spark Timing (EST) by-pass connector wire, located near heater housing in passenger compartment. On all models, DO NOT disconnect 4-wire connector at distributor.
3. Connect timing light to No. 1 spark plug wire. Check timing and adjust if necessary. Reconnect EST by-pass connector, and clear ECM trouble code.

Ignition coil resistance: 500 - 1500 ohms
Idle speed: 800 rpm

Just in case you need it.
