    The other day i went in the woods and my distributer was loose now my truck runs like crap. I went to go time it with a timing light and for some reason i cannot see the white line no matter which way i turn the distributer. No matter where i try to put the distributer it just runs like crap. Can anone help me? I made sure to clean the mud off the white line before trying to time it also.

    the outer ring on elastometer(splg) style balancers can sometimes spin or slip on the inner part

    that happened to me, it was a bit annoying. i ended up making a piston stop out of an old spark plug and bolt...worked outgeat. my balancer was off 20+ % iirc.
