    My timing tab is located on the my timing chain cover. The only problem is that I can't read any of the markings on it and it is really hard to get my big hands in there. So right now I just have my engine timed by ear :doah:.

    Oh, the engine is an 83 305 out of a Firebird, but I don't think it makes much of a difference. Anyone got pics?

    There should be a sawtooth edge to the tab, the biggest indent is usually 0 degrees and the first point is 2 degrees, the next point would be 6 degrees, then 10 etc.
