setting on a 150hp V8 (304) CJ5 engine

over here in germany I can not find the original settings for the timing, or the right sparking plugs.
The other thing is, does someone knows how early I can get with the egnition timing on an original but restored engine, the question is just because may be someone found the perfect timing, so I don`t have to test it on each rpm and watch or listen the or to the valves.
Thanks for Your help!
