Question 534 Tune up

I have a 534 in a 1976 Bluebird Wanderlodge. I need points gap/dwell and timing specs. I looked a the previous threads but did not see them posted.
Thanks for any help.

I was just checking out other forums, usually I'm in the V10 or FE, but I have a Motor's with the '76 534 in it, and some of the specs are different than what Kenny said.

Here's the poop:

Spark Plug: BRF-31
Plug gap: .030
Point gap: .017
Dwell angle: 24-30
Firing order: 15486372
Timing: Non-Calif: 6 BTDC, Calif: 8 BTDC
Hot idle: 550 RPM
Fuel pump pressure: 5-7 lbs.

That's for 1976

If it will help you out any, I posted some tune-up specs in the "gutless 534" thread that may be of some help to you. I just checked and the thread and the post are still there.

In his post, krew said some of his specs showed up differently than what kenny posted. That is somewhat the norm on the older point-type distributors.

If you would get your distibutor tag number--located just below the cap itched in the distributor body and with a 12127 base number--I will be glad to match the tune-up specs with the distributor number for you , if you would like for me to do so.
