Timing Adjustment On A 95 Chevy 4×4

I changed the intake manifold gasket on my 95 Chevy 4x4. In order to do that, I had to remove the distributor.

1988 Chevy C1500 W/ 305 Timing Problems

I bought this truck knowing that it had timing problems. I replaced the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor. The 305 engine had a sporadic timing tick.

How Do You Time A ’93 Honda Civic Si Hatch With A D16 Motor

At the risk of sounding like an idiot, I managed to blow my stock d15, threw a rod right through the block.

I've already swapped out the timing cover, and I'll have to swap ...

With that being said, the sticker said to get it to 6 degrees BTDC @ 600RPM. Has an HEI distributor in there (MSD) and I hear that gives you about 20 degrees. So for total timing, don't I just add those? And that'll give me total timing of about 26 degrees? I hear the small block chevy runs better ...
