The timing mark on all 305 to 400 small block Chevrolet engines from 73 to 87 is on the hamonic balancer which is the pulley behind the crankshaft and has no belt grooves...smooth with a split line on it....that line is the timing mark.
what are the timing marks on a chev 305 motor for the year 1995.
On the front of the timing chain cover, drivers side towards the top of the harmonic balancer.
if you look behind the water pump straight down u can see the timing marks.
If you will look stright down behind the water pump, you will see the timing tab.
they are behind the water pump looking strait down from the top of the engine
It could be your off a tooth with your distributor
looking down from (ONTOP) of the engine they are behind the water pump
The only thing I can think of is that the timing tab on your engine has been removed. The hash mark should still be on the balancer, but may be obscured by dirt, grease, or accessories. You might be able to get a new timing tab from an auto parts store or dealer. Some professional quality timing lights have a timing readout, which would eliminate the need for direct reading.
There is a mark on the timing chain cover behind the harmonic balancer(behind the crank pulley). The harmonic balancer also has a slot cut in it so that you can line the crank up with the mark on the timing cover. The mark on the timing cover should sit at the 2 o'clock position or the 12 o'clock position. My 96 Chevy 305 is at the 2 o'clock position.

That would be the biggest and widest mark. Are the first mark on it when turning it clockwise to the pointer.
Try 12 degrees initial and see if it pings. If not, try a little more.

here the best answer i can give you on the timing of a 305 Chevy engine i seen timing on these engines from 0 to 13 btdc the best way to set the timing is to disconnect the est plug and start the enginge and very slowly turn the dis. and listen to the engine until it runs the smoothest then turn it off and reconnect the est plug and try restarting it it should start nicely if not then you need to readjust the dis. my 305 which is a 1985 is happy at 12deg. btdc. but is built up a little and no poluion bull on it Mine runs good at 8-10 BTDC
there should be one on a decal under the hood. otherwise look in the apropriate copy of "motor manual" or "chilton's" or a factory manual
if the engine is removed from vehicle you need to remove the intake, the valve covers, the rocker arms, pushrods, and lifters; then you remove the timing cover, then line up the marks on the sprockets by turning the engine over by hand, then remove the cam and crank sprockets and timing chain; then pull out the cam and install the new one; line up the marks on the sprockets and reinstall them turning the cam if necessary; reverse the rest of the procedure.
It has a timing chain. All V-8 Gm products have them.
