Question about 1986 Ford Mustang
To set the ignition timing on 86 mustang, get a white crandon or white paint. Find dampener on the crankshaft behind the serpentine bell. Between to 0 and the 20 there is a 10 mark. Use the white crandon or paint to mark this. Hookup your timing light, to the battery and to cylinder number one on the distributor. On this side of the distributor where the wiring harness goes in there are two more wires hanging down from the harness. This is your spout plug connector. Remove it because with this in the computer will keep adjusting the timing by itself and you will not be able to set the timing. So with the spout connector removed and the engine warmed up adjust the timing with the engine running and the timing light pointed at the dampener aligned the pointer up with the number 10 that you have marked. Do this by turning the distributor back and forth until you achieve the correct timing. To do this you must loose and the half inch bolt on the distributor hold down, when you're done retighten this bolt. Good luck.
