    My '76 308 does not have dual points (R1 & R2) in the distributors nor the R2 microswitch on the carburetor. The distributors have a single set of points in each.

    I'm puzzled on how to set the timing, dwell, and gap on this car. The workshop and user manuals are very specific on setting the timing and adjusting the points for dual point distributors but nothing for single point distributors.

    Anyone got a clue?

    I know that you set the timing to at least 7 deg. Advance with single point setup. Some have gone up to 10 advance. I would assume that the gap would be set to the same specs as in the WSM but I could be wrong on that.

    my euro 78 308 had a single dizzy until i swapped it for electromotive. i will look in the owners manual for my euro and see if there is an air gap spec for the inductive pickup.
