HELP! What is timing supposed to be? 12* or 4*?
I replaced the head, distributor, cam, and a few other things. No start.
I have some help from friend. He used a timing light, it was 4* BTDC. I think that is wrong. We checked the timing gear/chain we replaced and noticed it might be off a tooth. But, I also think the distributor is off as well. Can someone post the correct timing?
Picture shows after and before. We haven't started it. It got too late. We will tomorrow.
