Its 10 degrees BTDC +/- 2 degrees.
whats the correct timing mark for a 1990 dodge ram pickup 318
It is set to zero degrees with a scan tool. It can not be done with a timing light.
Worn timing chain.
In a 1973 Dodge Coronet , the 318 was set at ( TDC ) with the automatic transmission ( a 1973 manual transmission equipped 318 was set at 2 and 1/2 degrees BTDC )
your timing is not adjustable. the pcm controls the timing. your dis. is index.
30 degrees dwell timing 8 to 10 at 650 rpm vacuum advance blocked off
If you set the timing at 10 degrees BTDC with the vacuum disconnected from the distributor you should be right in the ball park. I would add check under your hood it should reveal idle rpm and timing. On my 85' 5th Ave I have a 318 and it reads 7 degrees. Also, it has a Magnetic Probe receiver instead of traditional timing marks.
Timing is handled by the computer, there is no adjustment needed.
There is no advance for a 1998 Dodge 5.2. You just set the distributor at the mark on TDC and the computer takes care of the rest. It is set to 0 degrees with a scan tool. It can not be done with a timing light.

The timing should be set at 12 degrees before top dead center. If this is a Canadian heavy duty engine, it should be set at 2 degrees after top dead center.
Depends on the year and application, could be anywhere from 0 to 12 degrees. Please ask a new question with more info.
Valve timing is not adjustable on a stock engine. The timing chain is either installer correctly or not.
yes, unhook the vaccum hose to the distribuetor to set the timing.
As far as timing, the engine calls for 5 BTDC originally,. You might want to run it closer to 12, unless you get any spark knock. 8 degrees is a good setting.
18436572 is the order. potentially the harmonic balancer should have a carved notch which lines up with the timing mark on the block somehow The degrees should be on a label under the hood.
Not enough info to answer. It could be anywhere from 0 to 12 degrees depending on the year. Please ask a new question and include the year, make, and model.

The Dodge 318 is a 8 cylinder engine.The Dodge 318 is a 8 cylinder engine.
Start the engine and point the timing light at the timing marks. The flashing timing light will cause the timing mark on the harmonic balancer appear to be stationary and aligned with the timing marker. It should be lined up with "10 BEFORE." If not, turn the distributor until it is. Turn off the engine and tighten down the distributor hold-down. Unhook the timing light.
