Question about 1989 Ford Mustang
There are several types of timing lights, here is the most common type of light hookup, hook the red and black clips to the battery, the inductive clamp goes over the #1 Spark plug lead, on your engine that is the 1st cylinder on the left standing in front of the car, then go to the distributor and look at the wiring harness to the ignition module mounted on the outside of the distributor, there u will see a socket with a square plug in it, remove that plug, start the engine but make sure the timing light leads are out of the way from moving parts, point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley/balancer the timing should be at 10 BTDC, the pulley is marked, use chalk if you can't see the 10 degree marking, if the timing is within 2 degrees either way you are done, if not then loosen the bolt at the base of the distributor with a wrench and rotate the distributor to bring the mark to 10 degrees BTDC. tighten it up and replace the square plug, u are done.
