im not sure about heat range for your plugs. you might want to get onto a propane conversion site and see if it calls for colder or hotter plugs.

initial timing is usally set as high as possible w/o detonation. when it pings, back it off. i'm not sure what you would need for total timing, but if your running the stock dizzy i would say that it could probably use a set of lighter springs.

vacuem advance is the way to go for a street vehicle that needs to get decent mpg.

i will look into some of the info that i have.
tell us how stuff turns out...

Cookin' with gas now...

Run on heat range cooler with the same gap as stock.
Timing, I would recurve the distributor to give you more initial and less certifugal advance. At least thats what worked on my turbo propane El Camino....
