The timing specifications should be on a sticker either on the under side of the hood or on the cross member that houses the hood latching mechanism. Disconnect and plug the vacuum hose going to the distributor at the time of the procedure if this particular model is equipped with a vacuum line to distributor.

How many chain link do I count to set the timing


When you are setting timing you are setting top dead center and bottom dead center. Once established based on the marks on the crank and cam you adjust top dead and BDC by degrees in ADVANCED timing or behind/retarded timing by degrees by counting links. Each link used to be 5 degrees. Check repair manual on link values! they change with each engine and maker.

My warrior is getting gas and spark but will not start it timing is right and i changed the head and valves what is wrong with it


check for proper compression you could possibly have the timing 180* out and not be aware of it..bring the #1 up to top dead center and recheck the mechanical timing.. because there is 2 top dead centers..one on compression..one on the exhaust stroke.. you may have the wrong one..you need the compression stroke..

1992 Chevrolet Tahoe timing


timing on the chevy motors do not very much.
most of the older 350's timing are set about 8 deg before top dead center. some california smog certified 350 timing were set back to 0 deg or, at top dead center. check under the hood for a smog decal. it should have the timing specs, or it might say "timing not adjustable" or N/A. if it is missing the decal i would set it at 8 deg, road drive it, and listen for enging pinging on accelerating under load. if no ping i would leave it at 8 deg,if there is slight pinging i would ****** the timing in 2 deg increments until the pining stops. i would stop if i reach reach 0 deg or top dead center.

'92 VW Golf 1.8L timing problems. Changed the belt but have no idea how to get the timing right


You should need the timing light if you didn't move the distributor. If everything is lined up to top dead center, it should start.Make sure the cams and crank pull are set to 0 or at their marked position. Then you can mark the crank pulley with nail polish or some paint at 0 degree and then turn your timing light on while the engine is running and adjust distributor to advance or ****** the ignition timing. Usually its around 8-10 degrees before top dead center. You could refer to the manual for the exact degree.
