Are you sure you are on number 1 spark plug wire? if so your wires must be off on the cap. put the engine on top dead center on the compression stroke, that is with number 1 spark plug removed turn the motor over until you feel air rushing out of that plug hole and the timing marks line up at TDC. Then make sure that the rotor on the distributor is pointing at the number 1 plug wire, if not you will need to re-time the wires on the cap to where you make number 1 were the rotor is pointing and work clockwise around from there 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2.

How do I change to farinheight temperature?

A Celsius degree is larger than a Fahrenheit degree by 80%. But, Celsius sets its zero point at the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. So The conversion always includes adding 32 when going from Celsius to Fahrenheit and subtracting 32 when going the other direction. So the two formulas are as follows: Degrees F = Degrees C times 1.8 plus 32.
Degrees Celsius = (Degrees F minus 32) times 0.5556

Now, keeping it straight as to when to add or subtract 32 is also easy. Always do it while in degrees F. So, if you are going from degrees F to Celsius, subtract that 32 first because you are sill in F sized degrees. Conversely, when going from degrees C to F, wait until you've done the multiplication to convert your degrees to F, and then add the 32. Those 32 degrees in the differential are F degrees, not C degrees.

Finally, it may be easier to remember just the 1.8 or 180% instead of that 0.5556. That's ok. Just whip out your calculator and divide 1 by 1.8, which in math is called taking the reciprocal.

I have a smog tech who says my timing is wrong. I went to another mechanic who says it is good. I was told there is a tolerance of plus or minus 3, what is the correct way to read the scale?

I'd set it as close as dead on as possible,, a plus or minus of 3 degrees, off of whats the suggested timing, is just that,,,, OFF,, 3 degrees can make the motor fire late, or early, which in turn makes the computer make up the difference, each and every stroke, thats only 35k times a minute,, get what I'm saying,

Replaced slave cylinder and cant build hyd. pressure

You will have to bleed out the cylinder. You can do this by removing the cap on the slave cylinder resivor under the hood. Remove the slave cylinder from the transmission leave the line hooked up. Hold the slave cylinder at a 45 degree angle with the line end pointed up. Push the metal rod in and out while holding it at a 45 degree angle until the rod gets super hard to push. Holding it at a 45 degree angle allows the air to flow out though the line and out the resivor tank up above. Just be sure the tank is full when doing this. Also after doing this you should have good pedal however in a day or so you will probably have to do it again to get all of the air out. (Most of the time the pedal will fade again in a day) but dont worry just bleed it again. after the second time it is usually good. Good luck hope this helps feel free to contact me with any more questions about this

Timing on a 1999 350 gmc it saids you cant time it

Hello Eagle.
The timing is set by a crankshaft position sensor that is mounted at the front of the engine near the crankshaft. The computer sets the timing.
But there is an adjustment on the distributor to set the point of contact of the rotor to the distributor.
This must be adjusted with the use of a scan tool that is capable to read the degrees plus or minus on GM vehicles.
Another common problem that is seen with these engines is a worn gear at the bottom of the distributor. This wear throws the point of contact out and will cause misfire. Here again after this repair the scan tool will be needed to reset the point of contact.
I hope this helps to clear the issue for you.

Like to know how to set timing on a 92 suberu. all

The '92 Subaru Legacy uses a distributorless ignition system. No adjustment is possible/necessary. The computer adjusts the timing continuously.

You can check the timing if you have a timing light. The spec for engines with a turbo charger is 15 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM. Non-turbo engines are 20 degrees plus or minus 8 degrees at 700 RPM.
