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.

The timing marks are dots on the ends of the camshaft and crankshaft. They are on the sprocket ends where the timing belt or chain connects. The dots should be pointing towards each other for proper setting. The cam dot should be pointing down and the crankshaft dot pointing up. The dots or marks can only be viewed when the timing chain cover is removed. hope this helps...
