    Buick electra 1962 401 misfire?

    Hello everyone,
    My 1962 electra sounds like a boat on idle from exhaust on the drivers side.
    Sparks, wires, distributor are new last year.
    Where should I begin?
    How many degrees should the ignition be set to?

    1960 models have a 401, the shop manual should get you there.
