95 and earlier engines are timed using a timing light after unplugging the relay on the firewall. 96 and later engines are timed automatically by the computer.

Unplug the relay it should have a black and a tan set of wires, it could be on the fire wall or by te distributor, mark your timing marks on the vibration damperand the timing cover your correct timing setting should be on a sticker under the hood. hook up your timing lite to # 1 cylinder and adjust away. if you need more info let me know.

How to set timing on a 97 chevy pickup truck v6 4.3

there is no routine timing adjustment for the 4.3L engine, timing is controlled by the computer. If you are talking about timing after replacing the distributor, there is just the basic rotor alignment to No.1 cylinder with the engine at TDC.
