Hi everyone I'm Joe new here on the forum.
U was hoping someone can help me here. I have a 1988 bylines 2655 cierra sunbridge with a 350 Chevy and cobra stern drive. I changed the ignition from points to electronic ignition. If someone could help with the proper timing it would help a lot. Thanks

Welcome aboard ! The timing would generally be 3 degrees BTDC. What did you use to change the points a kit or a whole new distributor ?

Thanks David. I used a kit to change the ignition. I have the old points one still just in case.

Great did you install the diode fix as well ? I would suggest using a timing light to set it correctly.

Yes I believe it was. My cousin installed it. We're partners o. The Boat and he's the mechanic out of the two of us. I'll make sure I grab a light then.
