Nutter Bypass Timing ???

Hey Guys and Gals I have done the nutter bypass on my 87 yj 4.2 and have set the timing at 8 degrees but was wondering what you guys have yours set at .
It seems that if i put it at around 10 0r so it runs a little smoother but i do not want to advance it too far so I thought I see what range you guys are using.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to All

How many miles on it? Sometimes you have to compensate for worn out timing gears and chain.

It has 76000 on the motor and really runs well I just like things as close to perfect as I can make it.
I have a mallory dui ignition distributor with dui live wires coming by fed ex today so i hope this upgrade along with splitfire plugs,k&n filter and the nutter bypass and motorcraft 2100 carb with #48 jets and the borla headers and cat back exhaust will smooth things out as much as possible.

From what I have read 8 degrees is the ticket. I have not done ours yet do to the fact have it pulled it apart. Ran great but the timing was an issue and I found out why....nylon or teflon coating came off timing gears and there was a bit of slack. Never made a noise. Our jeep has 112,000+. At 76,000 I hope you wouldn't need new gears yet.
After you do all your work if you still question it, then you may take a look at your gears.
Good luck.
