Maybe these are available in the Factory Service Manuals but for the 1956 Dodge D500s, they are not.

I just acquired a vintage SEARS chrome metal powered-inductive timing light today from a friend who no longer has any non-computer-controlled vehicles
and, therefore, no longer needs the timing light.

I fired up my 56 Dodge D500 and checked the timing (after warming the engine until it was off the choke and idling at about 600 RPM).

I had it set at about 6 deg BDTC. I checked the factory specs in my binder and found that it should be 2 deg BTDC - but I remember liking 6 deg better.

While I had the Sun Electric and Factory Service Bulletin sheets out, I thought that I would scan them and start a repository of tuning specs for others to access.

I will start with the 56 D500 tuning specs today and I will add to this thread in the coming days. Please feel free to post up tuning spec sheets that you might have
for future reference.

I was surprised to find this on eBay last night (there were more that one available (different sellers). I bought one (with the cheapest total cost)

Interesting that the timing spec was 6 deg BTDC, not like the 56 D500 2 deg spec but the same as what I have my 56 D500 set at.

Just picked up the one that I bought and scanned it. Hopefully better than the image I stole from eBay.
