5.8L timing set number?

Ihave in my jeep a 91 ford bronco 5.8L, and i went to time it but the manual doesnt say what to time it too. I set it to 0 for now. But does anyone know where it should be set to? Im having problems with the starter acting like its low on battery when it gets warm. When i time it i pull the jumper thing by the distribitur. Am im doing it wrong?
