I know the timing is 6 degrees Before TDC but I don't know what the idle RPM is.. I'm trying to find that myself right now...
A 1976 Chevy did not have a points ignition, but that has nothing to do with the correct timing. You will find that the engine runs best with about 8-12 degrees BTDC.
The timing specs for a 1988 Ford Mustang 2.3L can be found in the service manual for this vehicle. You can find this at many libraries as well as at a Ford dealership.
find yourself a book, and a timing light to do it right...search a little on the web for a MK 1 fanatics web page that may have diagrams... when your fanatical yourself, you can post all kinds of stories and specs and stuff yourself...! :)
Try buying a manual from Haynes www.haynes.co.uk Your car may well not have adjustable timing.. It could be controlled by an engine management system, in the case of ignition timing. Valve timing is controlled by the timing chain and not adjustable. Failing that, I have adjusted (old style) timing myself by ear. It seems more accurate than a cheap timing light in most cases! Good Luck, Mick
It has no timing marks because the ignition timing is set by the computer and isn't adjustable.
You can find them here->http://www.boxwrench.net/specs/chevy_sb.htm
It has a timing chain. I don't know the answer to the latter part of the question, sorry. I've actually had the same issue finding true engine specs, not just the basics and the interior features!
It depends on what year S10 you have.
Where can I find a free online diagram of the ignition system wiring for a 1985 Chevy S10
autozone.com has online manuals that give you all that info Also just look under the hood. There you will find a placard with this some if not all this information.
Harley stopped production on the Shovelhead in 1984
GO TO ALL DATA.COM OR GO TO YOUR DEALER THEY CAN LOOK UP TECH SPECS, MAKE SURE TO TI[P THE GUY BECAUSE THAY HATE TO WORK FOR FREE AND A FEW BUCKS WILL GREASE HIM WITH THE INFO
Check the emissions label. Failing that (if not legible) you can get a new label from the parts department or get the specs out of SI.
pull the cam and lifters
follow the timing belt and u will find it..
The ignition module is located under the coil pack. Follow the spark plug wires to find the coil.
You don't, the timing is computer controled and needs no attention unless the timing gears strip in which case you properly align the camshaft and crankshaft before slipping on the new gears&chain or timing belt if so equipped.
"How to Rebuild the Big Block Chevy V8 Engine" Book has that info

There typically isn't any timing marks at the distributor. It is possible to slightly advance or retard the ignition (spark) timing by rotating the distrubitor but as far as timing marks go, the only that you will find will be right above the camshaft sprocket and the harmonic balancer (crankshaft pully). possible one more for the oil pump or countershaft.
200-225 horse power and about 325-350 ft-pounds of torque. Power output of a 350 Chevy ranged from a low of 145 to the LT-1, which was 370. If you were trying to find any other specs, please restate the question.
I know that you have to put the truck in base timing mode for my 93' but I have a EST or HEI style ignition. If you have the electronic distributor then find the grey wire with a plug on the end of it next to the A/C box on the left side under the hood near the firewall. It will be hanging out of the wire harness. Apply 12 volts to it from your battery with a jumper wire and the truck will go into base timing mode. then line up the marks on your balancer. take the jumper wire out and your set.
