if u are asking how to do it without a timing light, try as follows.. First pull #1 spark plug out of head. Then: turn engin over till compression comes out of sparkplug hole (indicating compression stroke) next, line up timing mark to proper notch. (should be listed on emission sheet under hood) such as 8 degrees btdc. Now... turn on ignition switch to Run ( not Start ) after that: loosen distributor and then: put #1 spark plug in boot for plug wire and ground the plug to the block. Finally, Turn distributor until plug fires! do final step 5 or 6 times to extablish exact position of fire. Now, tightne cistributor, install plug, snd your ready to go! Happy motoring!

How do you set the timing on a 1995 Chevy 350?

Good question, I too have this same issue with a 1999 crew cab (5.7L vortec) I need to set the timing and everytime I do it manually the computer over rides my settings. I have heard about this mysterious timing wire that needs to be disconnected to set the timing and then reconnected once the timing is set and the computer can record the new setting. The Brown/black wire has been scene under the passenger side carpet, behind the glove box and next to the relay center. Unfortunately, This 1999 doesn't seem to be the norm. Good Luck

Timing is set by the computer constantly while it is running. There is no manual adjustments to be made. If you did try to adjust it, the computer would just compensate and put it back where it wanted it, and if you still further tryed to change it manually, the vehicle would eventually not be able to run.
