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.
No, and you need the flywheel if you expect the car to move. Timing is adjusted in the distributor, not by the flywheel.
If you know which cylinder is number is number 1 depending on whether it is 6 or 8 cylinders depends on the timing marks all you have to do is find the firing order and aling the cylinders in that order.
Timing is fixed and determined by flywheel. The only way for timing to be off is if the flywheel key has sheared. As the magnets on the flywheel pass the armature (coil), a spark is sent, end of story.
Because the timing is advanced.
The timing marks on a Nissan ZD 30 diesel engine can be found on the front of the flywheel. The timing marks are scattered around the outside of the flywheel.
No. It positions the flywheel in the proper place for the ignition timing.
I thought that timing was measured off the crank gear and the cam gear. Not the flywheel :P
The timing marks can be found on the front main pulley and on the flywheel. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the pulley and the flywheel.
If you look at the harmonic balance you will see on the front of it a medium size circle. That will be your timing mark.
The timing marks are on a tab adjacent to the harmonic balancer.
on the harmonic balancer
on the crank puley
you cant a rm125 is a 2 stroke check the ignition timing through the flywheel
Timing marks are generally found on the flywheel or crankshaft pulley. This indicator is used to set the timing of an engine's ignition system.
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.
line up the timing marks on the flywheel and cam
On the harmonic balancer/driverside
It is located on the harmonic balancer.
on the harmonic balancer.
on the timing cover above the harmonic balancer leon
loosen one bolt retaining the distributor, aim your timing gun at the flywheel and rotate the distributor until the line on the flywheel lines up with the correct mark on the engine block.
On the front of the timing chain cover, drivers side towards the top of the harmonic balancer.
