Your firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8, your stock carb be should set at 2 turns out on each side of the front carb adjustment. Put the #1 cylinder at top dead center and verify that your balancer is set withing 3 degress of 0, then remove your distributer cap and verify the position of rotor bug is at at the begining of the #1 plug contact. Adjust your idle screw in just enough to see the butterflies in your carb move, then turn in 1/4 turn to get started (this will give you a high idle). Verify that all electrical, vaccum, Once you get everything set try to start engine. Once you get it started, lower the idle to around 1,000 rpm then set the timing with timing light to 10 - 12 degress, then lower idle 600rpm and redo timing. (this will allow you quicker adjustment without stalling the engine at low rpm). Once your locked in set the advance to around 35-36 degress by 2800 rpm.

There are two sprockets one in the head attached to the camshaft and the other one is in the block attached to the crank. There will be a dimple or mark on each of these sprockets. They should be facing each other. The bottom side facing up and the top sprocket with the timing mark facing down. Install your belt on the sprockets like so release your tensioner and your in business. Make sure your number one pistion is set at top dead center on the compression stroke in order to set your timing correctly.

How do you mark tdc on flywheel?

You don't and you can't. Just use the timing mark on the balancer and timing tab/ pointer. Line those 2 up with the # 1 pistion all the way up at the top of the cylinder on the compression stroke. If you are installing a timing chain and gears, just line up the dots on the crank gear and timing gear stright over top of each other. Crank gear will be at 12 Oclock and the cam gear dot will be at 6Oclock. You can't use the fly-wheel because it does not have any marks on it.

What is the Timing mark for a 305Cu 1969 GMC V6?

The crank shaft timing gear and the camshaft timing gears have marks on them. These marks are lined up so the crank gear is on top and the cam gear is on the bottom. when a straight edge when placed through the center line of the crankshaft and camshaft and lined up with the marks on the gears, the timing is correct. this is the procedure that I found in a old maintenance book for the GMC 305 V6 engine. I found that when you line up the timing marks this way that you are actually 180 degrees out ( number one is on the exhaust stroke) so your distributor will be pointing at cylinder #4. roll the engine around 180 degrees from this point( if looking at the timing chain the cam mark will be on top and the crank mark will be on top and they will both line up with a straight edge through the center-line of both shafts) and make sure that the distributor is actually pointing at number one. I do not know why the book does not have you line up the timing marks so you are on top dead center compression but it is easier to line them up the way the book says.

What are the ignition timing marks on a 92 civic?

There are 4 marks on the crank pulley. When standing on the driver side of the car looking down on the pulley, the mark farthest to the right is the mark for TDC (Top Dead Center). The three marks on the left are for the spark timing. Of these three the mark in the center should align with the arrows/triangles on the timing belt cover when the engine is running and a timing light is shining on the crank pulley. The outer two marks represent Honda's tolerances for the ignition timing. Be sure to let the engine warm up before checking/adjusting the timing.
