How do you set the timing in a 1995 Geo Tracker?

First you need a timing light which I assume you have. There is a notch on crank pulley,put a dab of white paint on it. Connect timing light, if off loosen bolt for distributor and adjust accordingly.Manual states 8 degrees BTDC @ 800 RPM. This is also assuming that all other components are in good working condition,timing belt etc.
