if your marks don't line up, make a new set that do. all you need is a piston stop of some sort. screw it into the spark plug hole, and turn the engine over until it gently hits the stop. make a mark on the balancer that lines up with the TDC mark on your current pointer. then go the other way until it stops and make a mark there, and right in the middle of that is true TDC. use a sharpie or an engraver or something and make an easily readable mark on the balancer, and use that to time the thing like normal.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

There are different bolt on timing tabs due to different balancer diameters. Make sure you have the right one. Many Chevrolet dealers carry these. You should check TDC, to make sure its correct.
