I believe its 6 degrees before top dead center. That's stock, I am modified a bit, and run mine back to about 10 degrees, no knock w/ 92 octane.
Ive got a 1986 firebird 5.0l engine, which i just timed not less than a week ago. it is 4degrees above top dead center with 91 octane fuel. iset my to factory setting which is 4degrees but check under the hood for labels, they should tell you at which degree to set it to
The correct timing for a Mercruiser 3.0L 140 engine is 6 degrees BTDC. for a Mercruiser 120 the correct timing is 8 degree BTDC.
The timing for this engine is electronically controlled and not adjustable
6 degrees btdc
The timing should be 8 degrees
A 1976 Chevy did not have a points ignition, but that has nothing to do with the correct timing. You will find that the engine runs best with about 8-12 degrees BTDC.
what is the ignition timing for a 1988 Chevy 454 engine
timing is adjusted by the ignition module and feed back from sensors
10 degrees, non-adjustable
the ignition timing is 6 degree BTDC.
your dwell angle will be 29 timing ( initial ) will be 6 degrees below TDC
Hoo I set the correct timing on a 1993 mazda protege
In the carb right behind the fuel intake line
The 1993 Subaru Legacy 2.2 liter engine ignition timing is the sequence that allows the engine to run smoothly. The ignition timing is synchronized with the crankshaft position sensor.
Ignition Timing Advancers are mechanical 'bolt-on' pieces to advance the ignition timing of the engine to a specific degree of timing advance. The majority of its application for these parts are for motorcycles or on racing applications.
Use a timing light and turn the distributor until you get the correct timing.
It requires an ENGINE SCANNER to set the ignition timing on that year of engine.
18436572 same as all Chevy v-8s that is the firing order, not the ignition timing. timing varies between vehicles. a sticker under hood will give timing info, or a Haynes or Chilton service manual
The timing on that year engine is computer controlled. It requires an engine scanner to set the timing. YOU CAN NOT USE A TIMING LIGHT.
There has been a lot of mail concerning how to set timing with an unknown engine. I think a basic description of timing might help sort out a lot of this. First, you should know that there are two types of timing in an engine: cam timing and ignition timing. (Three types, if you count injector pulse, but injection timing on gasoline-powered busses is tied to ignition timing and is not separately adjustable so I will ignore it, as should you.) Cam timing is what determines when the valves open and close with respect to the position of the pistons in their bores. It is set when the engine is built- by placing the camshaft and crankshaft in the correct relationship. It cannot be adjusted on a stock engine. It doesn
If you have the 3.8L engine, ignition timing is controlled by the computer and cannot be altered without making changes to the computer. If you have the 3.1L engine, which has a distributor, you can set the timing as you would on any engine with a distributor.
wich engine do you have?
First place there is no need to set the timing if the distributor has not been moved. And there is no wire to unhook.The ignition timing is controled by the ECM / engine control module. If the timing is off you will have a check engine light on. If the light is not on, then the timing is correct. No need to bother, The computer is taking care of it.You have to have a OBD II engine scanner to set the timing.
on my 1991 5.7 L mercruiser blue water the timing should be 8 degrees before top dead center.
