Noob Timing Question

My timing mark / tab or whatever was there is gone.

Would it be correct to assume that putting one of those timing tabs for the correct harmonic balancer size on the timing chain cover would allow me to set the timing correctly? It seems as though they could only go on in one spot.

Re: Noob Timing Question

I would and then check the timing with a light... As long as i docent ping or diesel. If it dose ping then retard the timing 2* at a time. If its a race motor it would need to be checked for total timing at say 3,000 rpm's.

Re: Noob Timing Question

Not something I would do.
The new timing tab could be bent..the balancer ring could have slipped on the hub etc etc.You need to verify absolute tdc on cyl #1 and ensure that 0* on the timing tab aligns with the notch/degree mark..or installed timing tape on the balancer for accurate readings with a timing light.
