Does anyone know what the mixture settings for this aircraft is? How hot do you set the ** or EGT for performance and economy?

I recently bought an "owner's manual" for a 1974 Cessna 340, which is the year this plane is modelled after. You can pick one up here if you like: http://www.aircraftm...il.asp?mID=4268 This manual states that the best power setting is 150o‚Äč rich of Peak EGT and the recommended lean is 50o rich of peak EGD. The best power setting gives you an increase of 2 ktas.
