Default need a faver for someone with a timing light please

i have a 85 2.3 ranger and i was wondering if anyone that has a timing light would check what there ignition timing is with the spout connected and let me know. when i unplug my spout and set the timing to 10 degrees then reconnect the spout the timing is at 18 degrees btdc people told me thats not to high for the 2.3 but if someone could just trow a light on and let me know for sure i would appreciate it.

The spout is the plug you pull out when you set the timing, it prevents the spark advance from advancing the timing so you can get a good base time.
