Need a timing tab- Help

Hey guys. In my 69 I have a little 355 with a 8" balancer, and a aluminum timing chain cover. It will only idle if the mark on the balancer is almost straight up when it is running. (between 12 and 1 if looking at it like a clock). I think that GM put the timing there in later 350's. But does anyone make a timing tab that will work. The balancer I have on there is brand new, so I dont think that the rubber slipped. I timed it by ear the best I could, and drove it. It seems to be o.k. but I would like to get the right balancer on it to time it more accurately. Any ideas?

Yep. Use what ya got. First put on your timing tab. Then use it as the reference and then find TDC with a piston stop. Mark the balancer and you're done. Ta Da.

Your Chevrolet dealer should have one. They bolt on with the same bolts as your timing cover. This will put your marks at about the two o'clock area.

I could probably get a timing tape and stick on the balancer also. Good idea. Thanks
