Good to know "old school" methods still work!

There is "a" timing mark on the flywheel which shows where top-dead-centre is for cylinders 1 and 4. It is behind a small cover with 2 bolts on the flywheel housing. If you are very careful, you can line it up and mark the new timing chain cover to line up with the mark on the crank pulley. Or even figure a way of installing the timing scale off the old chain cover onto the new one. If you have a "modern" timing light where you can preset it for the desired advance.

Or you can do it "really old school" (as in before timing lights were invented or common) and set the timing by ear. With the vacuum advance disconnected, you turn the timing back until the engine just begins to falter, then turn it gradually forward until the engine runs smoothest and fastest, then continue advancing until the engine stumbles. The sweet spot is at the smooth/fast point, about in the middle. Then reconnect the vacuum advance and test drive, labouring the engine to see if it knocks or pings and turn the timing back until the knock/ping is prevented.

Hello guys,

I replaced timing cover with a breather but there isn't any teeth or timing bracket to do my timing. Is there other way?

Thanks in advance
