My 80 don't have a pointer for the timing. When I adjust it to where it has the quickest responce on throttle it seems to have a little drag on start up (the low battery sound)
If I adjust it where it starts quick the there is a lag in between WOT and responce?
The RPMs seem higher now but I don't really like the slow start up.
But it goes from one to the other?
Oh yea I did the top dead center thing.
Ideas?

The drag sound is too much timing

How old is your Timing chain,could be stretched. But if its running good and no pinging your almost there.

do it the "old fashioned" way! ALWAYS works!!

Loosen hold down with engine at idle. Have someone hold the brake, and rev the engine to about 1500-2000 RPM. Advance timing til it starts to ping (do NOT disconnect vacumn advance!). Back it off 2*. You're there! WORKS EVERY TIME!!!!

I' ve been back in forth. One spot starts fine move it a hair and quicker responce and higher RMPs but starter drag. It goes from one to the other. As for age of timing chain?
The burn out or blow up is next weekend and it will fry em right now so I can put up with a little starter drag I just can't fugure out why?
