clockwise ...or counterclockwise... check with a timing light and then turn... also everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:)

It is on the side of the engine block. By the way, they very seldom go bad. The purpose of a knock sensor is to pickup engine noises and retard ignition timing so that it will not be so audible.

You dont. It is an LT1 engine and the distributor is behind the water pump.

4 degrees BTDC. Fireing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on distributor cap.

There is no maintenance schedule for replacing a timing chain. Timing chains are designed to last the life of the engine and are normally replaced during a complete engine rebuild.

how to set engine timing for mazda t3500

The timing chain is behind the timing cover which is behind the water pump. To get at it, you'll need to remove everything in front of the cover and loosen the oil pan a little.

The cam timing on a 4.6 SOHC engine is set by aligning the timing marks of the timing chain to the cam sprocket. This sets the initial timing based on factory settings.

The timing on a Saturn engine is fixed - you must line up the TDC marks when you change timing chains. Any variations in spark timing are controlled by the computer.

Look at your timing scale the 305 times from behind the water pump & the 350 times in front of the water pump.

The Chevy Classic doesn't use a timing belt.

That should be a 350 cubic inch engine with a carburator, HEI ignition with a vacuum advance. You will need to hook up a timing light to number one (1) cylinder. That is the front plug on the driver's side. Start the engine and let it warm up. There is an indicator on the front lower side of the engine. It is marked with the degrees. Disconnect the vacuum from the advance and plug it off and then adjust the timing to the desired specs. Tighten the distributor and plug in the advance. If you do not get an increase in rpm when the vacuum is connected, then the vacuum advance is bad.

Set timing at 36 degrees at 2000 rpm's

Since this category is 305-350, I'll have to assume that YOUR engine is one of the two mentioned. The 1990 Chev 305 and 350 did not use a timing belt. They used a timing chain, and unless something really odd happened, you should never need to replace the timing chain until you rebuild the engine.

Sounds like your timing chain might have jumped a notch. Timing is set by rotating the distributor. There is a nut underneath the distributor that locks it down. Timing mark is on the harmonic balancer, sorry I don't have the setting handy. I would start by checking the timing with a timing light. VBdenny
