I've never heard of a 350 Chevy that didn't have a balancer or hub with timing marks, but if such a thing exists, you could get a timing light or engine analyzer that displays the timing on the gun. It is attached in the conventional manner, but you look at the display instead of the engine for the reading. These are much more expensive than a normal timing light, so you might want to look into renting one if possible. Alternatively, if you can see the flywheel turning when the engine is running, you could rig up a fixed timing tab over the flywheel and make a chalk mark on the tooth that lines up with the tab when the engine is at #1 tdc for compression, and then use a normal timing light.

What is the degree timing mark for 1965 327 small block Chevy?

the timing mark is an engraved line on the flywheel. there should be a metal flap offset of the flywheel with markings for A (advanced), O (ontime), and R (retarded). use a timing light connected to the spark plug wire for #1 cylinder. That is how it is in my 65 impala 327 Minor correction is that the timing mark is on the front damper not the flywheel.
