On most stock SB 350s the timing should be fine at 6-8 degree's Before Top Dead Center AKA BTDC. However if the cam is not stock you may want to contact the cam's manufacturer for the best timing suitable for your cam. I personally set the timing until I obtain the best performance I want to achieve. , EzForJesus

If you are looking for the best performance possible, get a timing light that will check your timing at full advance. Start off at about 40 degrees total timing (engine running above 2800 rpm) and vary it up or down a few degrees until peak performance is found. Best accomplished at a drag strip on test'n'tune night.

Does the 1991 2.5 s10 have a timing chain or a belt or just mesh gears and how do you replace them The camshaft is gear driven off the crankshaft. The camshaft gear is pressed onto the camshaft. The camshaft must be removed from the engine to change the camshaft timing gear. The timing gears should last the life of the engine. Next time, please don't answer your question with another question.

You can set the camshaft timing on your automobile by lining up the timing marks. There will be timing marks on the front main pulley and timing marks on the camshaft.
