So... I had my timing chain off and was messing with my cam to check the wear and then realized I screwed up my timing. I cant find anything in the manual (i'm sure it's there, I just cant find it), can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Using general terms you set the engine at TDC byt the fly wheel and slide the gears and chain onto the two shafts with the two timing marks pointing at each other. Make sure you are really at TDC and both valves are closed on cylinder 1.

Sadly by this point the distributor is usually off. You need to remove the distributor set it to plug #1, take into count the curve of the gear and install so that the drive shaft in the distributor/rotor is still at #1 AND you can get the distributor lock down/adjustment bolt installed. After years of distributor engines it still takes me at least 2 tries. :mrgreen:
Where do I see the timing marks?

Thanks! I had my pulley off so that would explain the difficulty finding the mark!
