It depends on the year, which engine code it is, what emission equipment is installed etc. Check the underhood specifications sticker - hopefully it is still there and readable. It should be in front of the radiator somewhere.

What is the correct timing on a Ford 390 motor?

Spark plug gap - .034" Point Gap- .021 M/T, .017 A/T Dwell Angle- 24 to 39 M/T. 26 to 31 A/T If the 390 was produced in 1962, the ignition timing was five degrees before top dead center ("BTDC"). If produced in 1963 and equipped with a manual transmission, the ignition timing was five degrees BTDC, and eight degrees BTDC if equipped with the automatic transmission. If produced between 1964 and 1966 and equipped with the manual transmission, the ignition timing was four degrees BTDC, and six degrees if equipped with the automatic transmission. If the 390 was produced in 1967 and not equipped with the Thermactor Exhaust Emission Control System, the ignition timing was 10 degrees BTDC. The ignition timing for all other 390s was six degrees BTDC.

Would a badly stretched timing chain in a 1985 Toyota 4x4 4-cylinder r-22 cause the motor to miss?

Certainly. Timing is critical to an engines operation and a stretched chain wont allow the valves to open and close at the correct time or the ignition to deliver a spark at the right moment.

When to change Timing belt for 1995 ford E-250?

Not sure which motor you have but none offered in the full size vans would have a belt. It would be a timing chain and they will usually last the life of a motor as they are internally lubricated by the engine oil of the motor. I have never heard of a broken timing chain under normal use. Usually they get stretched and can become noisy and/or jump a tooth and cause the motor to loose correct timing and run bad or not start.

It depends on the motor..if you have overhead cam...then YES. The timing belt has to be removed when the water pump is changed and the cam sprockets have to be set to correct timing when the belt is replaced.

What is the timing and firing order for a 1986 Chevy C10 pickup with a 305 motor?

how do you do the timing for a 350 small block] The FIRING ORDER is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, that is, the sequence the cylinders fire in. #1 is on the driver's side front, #2 is on the passenger side front, and so on, back and forth. the correct ignition timing should be 4 degrees before top dead center.
