Re: 383 stroker timing help
There are other ways but this will work... Pull the plugs and put your thumb over the plug hole on the #1 cyl. It's the closest to the radiator on the drivers side of the car. Pull the coil wire and with your thumb over the plug hole bump the engine around until pressure builds up and blows past your thumb. If your mark is right and you have the right pointer you should find the mark just approaching the pointer.
If that is what you have then you can put a socket on the crank and turn the engine by hand and line the timing mark with the pointer. If the pointer and mark are not even close, then you'll need a piston stop to aid you in dialing in TDC from here but you should be real close at this point...
