There is supposed to be a tab on the timing cover a lot of times it gets broken off. GoodluckJoe
I have a 1986 Suburban with a 350.More than likely it's in the same place as mine. Look behind the water pump from above, more than likely your TVS switch will be in your way. However, it is there. The vibration dampner will identify TDC almost completely verticle.Behind the pump you should find a traditional timing gauge along with a tube extending upwards through the gap between the water pump and block. It is possible to set the timing to this mark, however like mine, you may have to remove the water pump to clean and verify it's accuracy with alittle tweak or Two. The tube is for a special kind of timing indicator/light for the shop tech to use. I know, it is seems like a dumb idea compared to the traditional timing mark between the power-steering pump and bottom of the water-pump, but what can you do, it was the 80's.
If you are having trouble seeing the timing marks spray carb cleaner or Brake clean on it till it cleans up. I have also pushed a rag down on it with a long screwdriver and wiped it off as well.Stan
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.
