Timing a 94 4.0L - What are best practices?

Finally, after eight years, I have blown smoke out of a 94 4.0 YJ motor sitting in my scrambler.

I think the I have the timing to far adanced or retarded. Aaron, I could not have gotten the baby started without your wisdom on putting and taking out the distributor so I could prime the motor with oil after all these years.

When I give it gas, there is lag time to accelerate. Hence, what is the best way to set the timing on this motor? The engine has about 98K on it, timing chain seemed fine, new splitfire plugs and 8.8 wires, everything is stock. How do we get it to puuuurrrr? Thanks

1985 CJ with a transplanted 94YJ 4.0L motor, T176 tranny, mainly stock otherwise. ><>
