Ignition timing: Hook up a timing light to the #1 spark plug wire and battery, Loosen the bolts on the distributor. With the engine running shine the light on the plastic timing mark located on the lower timing belt cover. Adjust the distributor forward or backwards as needed to align the mark on the crank pulley with the big mark on the graduated pointer on the timing belt cover. Once aligned tighten the distributor and your done.

It takes about .9 of an hour to change regardless of which engine you have.(book time) it is located on the distributor, you have to remove the distributor to check it and/or replace it.

The mazda Familia, a.k.a. the Protege appears to be the best selling mazda of all time. To date it has sold over 10000000 units. The mazda rx7 on the other hand is the best selling rotary enginged car of all time.

No, all cars from about 1993 are fuel injected. Fuel injection started in the late 1970's on luxury cars and trickled down to less expensive cars over time. Most cars had it by 1987.

Is very possible but it is a wate of time and money, I have B2200 and trust me the smallest engine that can manage the weight of that mini pick up is a 2.0L anything smaller is a waste, I tried with RX7 engine and it is not that reliable, unless is turbo and have to play with diferential ratios
