I nuttered mine after a carb swap and without adjusting the timing it would start and run seemingly "ok". After i put the timing light on it, it was around 0 degree's, so i adjusted it to 8 and and ran much nicer.

why don't you just put the timing light on it to see where it is, everything may "seem" ok, but after running for awhile with the timing off you may damage something. couldn't hurt to check it, unless your absolutely ok with not knowing what your timing is.
