How do you time a 1991 non-turbo Eagle Talon?

I just had to do this in order to replace my water pump. If you're not mechanically inclined I'd strongly suggest you have someone certified set the timing. Since then my 91 talon revs up and down as long as it's running. I just bought an Idle Control Valve. I hope this will fix the surging.

There are notches, or timing marks located on the sprockets that have to be accurately lined up in order to set the timing. hope this helps.
