1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: 65 GT350 HiPo Distributor

Can anyone tell me if the original C5OF-12127-E dual point HiPo distributors in the GT350's were set up for 20 or 26 degrees of mechanical advance and what the dwell number is supposed to be. Seems like I remember each point set was at 26 degrees with total dwell between 30-33 degrees.

Was looking at couple distributor shafts and noticed a slight difference in how the reluctor (points cam) is separated from the top plate welded to the top of the long distributor shaft.
One shaft has a brass colored washer between cam and shaft. Other has a stamped "spacer" with two tangs bent 90 degrees and protruding thru 2 holes in plate at top of shaft. Both do same function, but curious why and when change was made.

I went back to the picture in Bod Mannels book and used magnifier to take close look at the points plate attaching screws. Missed it on first look but indeed, the two plate attaching screws used a split washer, just like the picture you posted!
Am looking at the bottom side of the screws used to secure the points. From your picture, there appears to be a slight shoulder under the surface of the screw. Gotta go out to the cave and take look at the points screws I have to see if they are correct...Jim C always used to say I was just a bit Anal on stuff never see. Yep.

I stumbled across my copy of Bob Mannels excellent reference book and found a picture of a correct 65 HiPo distributor in Chapter 5. No washers anywhere and all screws common. Knew I had it somewhere, but filing system failing, like me...

Have seen couple pictures of the screw heads holding the points place to the distributor case that are Phillips as well as flat but significantly more that are flat. Can you confirm correct are common and like the points and condenser, do not use a washer of any kind?
Thanks!

Rick - Got it!
Did the 2 points plate machine screws use a star or split washer? Same for the 4 machine screws for the points and the single on the condenser?
Sometimes too much manuda.

Rick
How is that different than setting to TDC and turning dizzy till it gets 10-12 initial at idle.

Thanks for the clip alignment tip Bob.

Set timing mark to zero on balancer after confirming number one at TDC.
Stab distributor with cap clips parallel to engine centerline and rotor pointing to number one plug at terminal marked 1 at approx 1PM position on cap.
Start engine and adjust distributor case to read whatever initial timing is desired (i.e. 10-12, 18 degrees) at idle.
Then verify mechanical plus initial advance gets close to desired total advance target.
initial + mechanical = total advance.

Am I getting sorta close?

Small block 289 Hipo with iron heads and 4 speed.

Assume target timing is 38 degrees total with 18 degrees initial with 20 degrees mechanical.

Verify number one cylinder on compression stroke. If number one piston is truly at top dead center, timing marker should point to TDC mark on balancer.

Is distributor dropped with rotor pointing to desired location of number one plug wire with balancer at TDC or is engine rotated to a location other than zero, such as 35-40 degrees before top dead center mark on balancer before install distributor rotor to point to desired number one plug wire?

I have it locked away somewhere, but my filing system is failing me, again.
Can someone please tell me what the correct initial and mechanical advance is correct for a 65 GT350 HiPo engine?
Thanks!!!

Who is the current go to guy for rebuilding and setting up the 65 HiPo dual point distributor for a GTt350.  Have one that needs the right magic fingers to make it spot on correct for a 65 GT350.
PM or e-mail with reliable references/recommendations please.
