Default stock timing for 351w?

Anybody happen to know the stock timing on a 351 windsor for idle? I had the timing advanced quite a bit for racing but i just want to street drive it now.

Thanks!

what ill do is use a vacumn guage, ill advance the timing till i reach the highest vacumn reading and tighten the dizzy down, of course i do this with the motor at temp. shut it down and leave it off for about 2 min then try to restart, if it starts slow or sluggish ill back it off till it stops. then drive it and check for pinging. if it pings you can dial out some timing with the vacumn advance if you have one.

also im sure your windsor has quite a bit of cam in it, and the cam will not like base timing specs guaranteed, they like lots of initial timing, the vacumn guage will let you see where the engine is the happiest. good luck

Thanks!
Seriously?

Is that your car in your sig?
Are you driving it?

And you don't know how to set the timing for 'street driving'????

Something fishy here
