Static timing on a 70 280SEL?

Does andybody know the static timing number for a 70 280SEL M130. (Can't find my BBB) I sort of remember it being 10 deg BTDC, but am not sure.

Thanks

Michael

It should start well when all the marks align
Set crank pointer static at 0-10 maybe 5
(both valves closed compression stroke)
rotate distributor body mark to align with mark on rotor,
(you can even can listen for spark while rotating body)

Close enough to run, use a timing light after running.
