there is no exact angle on your timing light you just shoot the light on the main pulley& tune the distributor cap to the rpms u want to be turning over in that particular engine 12 degrees BTDC (before top dead center), normally the crankshaft pulley has 2 indicators on its side, the single line ( marked color white) and 3 lines together with the center line marked color red. The 3 lines together is your indicator to get the correct timing angle of your engine.

The timing on a 1999 Honda Civic can be adjusted setting the distributor to the correct angle. Setting the distributor forward to much will mess with original settings of the ignition.

# Start the engine and allow it to warm up (cooling fan comes on). # Remove the rubber cap (YEL) from the ignition timing adjusting connector located at the left rear engine compartment and connect the BRN and GRN / WHT terminals with a jumper wire. # Connect a timing light to the engine; while the engine idles, point the light toward the pointer on the timing belt cover. ## Adjust ignition timing, if necessary (color refers to timing mark indicator). Specified value: 18°±2°BTDC (RED) at 725±5O rpm in neutral # Adjust if necessary by loosening the distributor adjusting bolts, and turning the distributor housing counterclockwise to advance the timing, or clockwise to retard the timing. # Tighten the adjusting bolts and recheck the timing. # Remove the jumper wire and install the rubber cap onto the ignition timing adjusting connector.

The 2007 Honda Civic has a timing chain that should last the life of the engine.

No, the 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid has a timing chain that should last a life of the engine.
