If you mean the marks on the crank pulley used to set ignition timing, there should be a mark cut into the pulley and a plate on the timing cover with marks to line up with. Or the marks are on the pulley and there is a tip on the timing cover.
Base timing should be around 10 degrees BTDC. With today's unleaded fuel, you may have to play with the timing to keep from having spark knock.

The firing order is 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2, distributor turns counter-clockwise. The ignition timing can be set using marks on the vibration damper. The wide mark is TDC (Top Dead Center), each mark after the wide mark represents 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 degrees before TDC. Set timing 3 degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center). In addition, valve timingis set like this: Intake opens: 12 degrees BTDC
Exhaust Closes: 8 degrees ATDC

SOURCE: i need timing for 1988 4seallender ford ranger

The timing marks should be on the outside of the timing belt cover and on the harmonic balancer. If you are unfamiliar with the proceedure I suggest getting a Chilton or Haynes manual. You will need a timing light to check the timing. Backfiring is caused by cold air being pulled into the exhaust system. Check for holes or loose connections in your exhaust.

SOURCE: where do the timeing marks need to be on a 302

6-8 degrees before top dead center. Be sure to remove & block the distributor vacuum line before setting the timing. After the adjustment replace the line. Good luck!

It would be very hard to give instructions on how to do this over the Internet. If your not good with auto electrical stuff then I suggest going to a auto electrician, any auto elec should have no problem with this.

Engine identification number 3789404 and 3764478. both GM blocks. getting major run-a-round on silly sites


Hello, according to my manual the 3789404 is the casting number for the 292 cubic inch inline-6 cylinder block produced from 1963-1976

I do not show a 3764478 number...3764476 is a 235 CID inline-6 from years 1958-1962
These are Chevrolet castings.

I hope this helps.

What is the correct timming mark or degrees for 1962 ford falcon 170 motor


According to my Chilton book it is 4 degrees Before TDC for a standard transmission and 10 degrees Before TDC on the automatic. The marks are on the pulley it says, not the damper. It doesn't say what size the engine is. It does list a 170 and a 144 for 1963. In 1963 the timing is 6 degrees BTDC for the standard and 12 BTDC for the automatic and the mark is on the damper. Hope this helps.

I have a 1964 ford f-100 pickup truck with a 292 engine and three speed on the calum,what other engines could i get that would bolt up the same but have more horse power?


Not 100% sure on this, but the 390 should work. How about just beefing up the 292 by adding a 4 bbl carb with a new intake? Easy to do and not expensive. You could also look into a new cam shaft that would drive some hp to the engine. Shaving the heads is also an option.
