VN's & VL's had a 304ci w/electronic ignition. other models previous were 253's or 308ci engine.
About 3 months into production in 86 holden started installing unleaded & carby & Group A injected 4.9/304's in VL's.

Set the points with a credit card (40thou). Angle was around 30 degrees (+ or - 4 is within spec), it tells you on some of the old timing light gauges if it has a coil (green) hook up clip.
Static ignition timng was 6-8 deg BTDC (summer-winter respectively) but they always seemed more pokey at 12-18deg especially if a nice cam profile was installed.

The condensor capacity was .01uf Green Capacitor.
