Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab
The specs are 10 degrees. 1st find the timing mark indicator on the front of the engine, clean it off so it is visible, 2nd find the timing mark on the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine(lower pulley), mark it (groove) with white chalk and wipe off excess, this will make it easier to see while engine is running. 3rd find the shorting plug for the distributor, should be on the left hand fender well up by the firewall, 2 wire connector with a grey or black plug stuck in it with no wires coming out. To set timing, hook up timing light, remove shorting plug and observe timing mark while engine is running, it should be steady at 10 degrees, if not loosen distributor lock bolt and rotate distributor until it does. It is very important that the shorting plug be removed, this is the only way to reach base timing (w/o computer). When finished reinstall shorting plug, ignition timing will be advanced by the computer automatically. Hope this helps, let me know.
