The only timing that matters is the max advance.

Turn the distributor until it starts. Set max advance (32 degrees typically) and the static will be where it is. Marelli distributors have a weak spring issue, that effects idle speed as the springs don`t return the counter weights to there resting point.

Clean the weights rub surfaces and change out the spring with the long "U" hook to one of the shorter versions on the other counter weight.
