double posted. read other post. what country are you in?
cam marks or spark marks.?
my wild guess, is a timing strobe light in hand
why not say what you are doing? give a context :
im fooling around?
I just replaced the timing belt at 60k service .
I just did a spark tune up and want to validate timing.....?
just put on a new dizzy or head? or ?
if attemping to set Spark timiing? you must first place the timing
freeze jumper. or the PCM keeps moving the advance.
honda has their own name for Freeze , SRS (see below)
that is its #1 job (besides injection) ( iv no idea what engine options so) why not RTM.
open the book turn to your cars, engine option and read.
see that? possibles.......?

2.3 L F23
2.3 L or F23-A8 I4 (Inline 4)
example of reading an FSM or online version.... just 1 example...
ill pick one and random, i log in to alldata or mitchels.
i pick 4cyl not V6
If equipped with an automatic trans-axle, place the shifter in Park or Neutral. If equipped with a manual trans-axle place the shifter in Neutral. Make sure to apply the parking brake and block the drive wheels.
With the heater off and in the full cold position, start the engine and hold the engine speed at 3000 rpm, until the radiator fan comes on at least one time. To check the ignition timing, the engine must be at idle speed and at normal operating temperature. Make sure all electrical consumers (defroster, radio, air conditioning, lights, etc.,) are turned OFF.
Locate the blue plastic Service Check (SCS) Connector, as follows:
CR-V models: centrally located under the passenger side of the dash. The connector's has two wires; one is brown and the other is black.
Odyssey models with 4-cylinder engines: centrally located on the passenger side, under the dash. The connector has two wires; one is brown with a black tracer, and the other wire is red.
Connect the SCS service connector tool number 07PAZ-0010100 or equivalent to the service connector. A paper clip can be substituted for the tool by forming a "U" shaped bend in the paper clip and carefully inserting it into the back side of the SCS service connector terminals. The purpose of the tool is simply to connect the two wires together temporarily.
Connect a timing light to No. 1 ignition wire and point the light toward the pointer on the timing belt cover.
Check the idle speed and adjust if necessary.
The red mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the pointer on the timing belt cover.
NOTE: in USA, open hood look up see sticker see spark time spec
The white mark on the crank pulley is Top Dead Center (TDC).
Adjust the ignition timing by loosening the distributor mounting bolts and rotating the distributor housing to adjust the timing. Set as follows:
1997-98 CR-V models: 14-18deg at 700-800 rpm
1999-00 CR-V models: 14-18 at 680-780 rpm
2.2L/2.3L Odyssey 2.2L models: 13-17 at 650-750 rpm
1998 Odyssey 2.3L models: 10-14 at 650-750 rpm
Tighten the distributor bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm) and recheck the timing.
Remove the SCS service connector or the substituted paper clip from the SCS service plug.
