do it at normal operating temp...make your marks on the timing tab and the damper....on the drivers side of the firewall is a wireing harness...there should be a single wire sticking out ot it that is tan with a black stripe, unplug that wire connector to time engine....the check engine light will come on at dash....set timing...should be set to zero btdc...remember to plug connector at firewall back together when done.
