    Default distributor points gap for 345 v8

    Does anyone know the proper gap for the points in the distributor for my '67 908 pickup with the 345 engine? The points look entirely too close when they open. Thanks!

    point gap for a V8 is set so that the DWELL is 30 degrees. You will get very close at .016-.019.
    The 908B (67) and 908C (68) came with a 266 V8. A 345 would bolt right up, but it was not the original engine. The point gap would be the same. In fact, the distributor would be the same, too.
    Time off of number 8 cylinder. Firing order is on the intake manifold.

    I have a DWELL meter I no longer need if you can't find one at your local parts store.
