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.

Base ignition timing for any car should always be set according to the information found on the manufacturers emissions information label, affixed to the underside of the hood. Should this information/sticker not be present, a 1991 Civic DX with D15 engine uses 14* BTDC static ignition timing. It is best to use a dial-back type timing light in-lieu of relying on the marks on the crank pulley.
