TIMING, DWELL

1968 GMC C2500

Engine Performance problem
1968 GMC C2500 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 60555 miles

I can never find anything that deals with the rare engine my greatuncle ordered when he bought this gmc 2500 pickup truck. I am tuning it up and need timing specs, point gap, or dwell. Also it has solid lifters so I also need valve adjustment specs. I truly hope you can help me because I have to smog to get registration. Thank You Michael Keyes P.S. This is a 351 c.I. V-6 !

The only engines listed are 230 250 and 292 I six, 351 engines were V8 Fords? Is this a striaght or V block engine. Where did he buy it from? V8's were 307, 327, and 396. GMC six are 170, 240 and 300. Never mind I found your V6 351! I will email the specs to you! Learn something new every day
