Question about Cars & Trucks
I need to know how to adjust the timing on a 1987 buick century estate station wagon with a 3.8 litre v-6 motor
On older vehicles... loosen the bolt holding the distributer and turn a little clockwise or counter clockwise. If you have a timing light plug it into the spark plug wire of the #1 cylinder and look for the timing marks on the front of the harmonic balancer. But you could just wing it without a light.

on the driver side of the distributor is where your blot is it should be a nine sixteenths there is a special wrench you should use if you can. it makes it easier. that is all you need to loosen

call a parts store they usually can provide you the routing for serpantine belts good luck getting it right though it can be tricky pay close attention to how the belt is routed :)

SOURCE: Valve adjustment
The EA82 does not use shims. Ticking almost always caused by a failed oil pump to engine block gasket failure. The gasket slowly fails which then allows the oil pump to pump air along with the oil. Replace the "Mickey Mouse" oil pump gasket.
