How to set time

You should be at the corect timing mark if the belt was installed properly. You should use a timing lite to be sure that it is bang on the money if you think it is off. here is another way to double check if you don't have a timing lite. First dis-connect the negative battery lead for safety reasons. locate your timing mark on your harmonic balancer ( the large pulley on the crank shaft ) mark it with some chalk or white paint. remove the # 1 spark plug and put a long screw driver in the cylinder and turn the engine by hand until the # 1 piston reaches the top. ( be carefull that the screw driver does not bind in the cylinder ) check to see where the mark is on the harmonic balancer and if it is lined up to where it is suppse to be. If you can not see it then rotate the engine again until it has the # 1 cylinder at the top again then you should see the timing mark . at this point take the top off of the distributor and the rotor should be pointing at the # 1 cylinder.
