View Full Version : 87 PS timing mark ?

07-25-2012, 05:56 PM
I am just wondering where the timing marks are on my 351. I know what TDC is, but there are no other marks on the crankshaft pully. How do I know what 10 degrees BTDC is? Also, is it worth spending the money on a timing light with the advance feature? I am pretty green with timing so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

The marks will be on the harmonic balancer.....you probably just need to clean it up a bit. Get in there with a can of carb cleaner and a rag. Once the marks are visible, use some White Out typing correction fluid to mark either 0 (if you have an adjustable timing light) or the correct advance (if you do not have an adjustable light). You don't have to get the light with advance, but it's nice to have.
