The factory service manual specifies eight degrees before top dead center. With unleaded fuel though, you may have to play with it a couple degrees either way.

Depends on what year it is and which engine it has. If it has a pushrod engine in it, it has a timing chain instead of a belt. If it is an overhead cam engine, then it does. Keep in mind that the Malibu was originally a Chevelle model starting in 1964. The Malibu replaced the Chevelle in 1978, so there are a lot of possibilities here.

The fuel filter is located underneath, and towards the front of the engine. If it's an original, it will be a silver looking canister resembling an oil filter, but smaller.

The color codes for the 1964 Ford Thunderbird are listed at: "http://automotivemileposts.com/paint1964tbird.html" The original color code for your vehicle should be on the driver's side door jam if it is still intact on your vehicle.

loosen one bolt retaining the distributor, aim your timing gun at the flywheel and rotate the distributor until the line on the flywheel lines up with the correct mark on the engine block.
