Start it there. Get the gearing close and roll some timing in later.
Note that all motors are different. Some like Trinity motors have 30deg of timing when the end bell is set to zero. On those you run 10-20deg of timing for a total of 40-50deg true timing.
On a Reedy motor zero is zero so you run a true/indicated 40-50 deg timing.
