when trying to set timing which side should you be aiming for either clockwise of the white line or anticlocklwise of it????

Re: clevo questions????

Put light on No. 1 plug lead.
Harmonic balancer marks should be on anti-clockwise side of engine block timing marker (that is "left hand side") before top dead centre. Other side is after top dead centre.
Remembering that engine rotates clockwise if you are standing at the grille looking towards the rear of the car.

Don't quote me but I've been told about 10.5:1. You do need to calculate it properly though.

Re: clevo questions????

The more you advance it, the mark ON the balancer mark moves to the left of the block marker.

If your balancer is old and worn, get some liquid paper or white paint pen and put additional dabs at 5, 10, 15, degrees etc. You can make the 0, 10 and 20 marks big the 5's small for easy recognition.

Re: clevo questions????

The picture is balancer and the timing pointer bolted to block.(use imigination a bit) The pointer must be marked white right at the end, and then mark the balancer where you want the timing to be, which is 10 BTDC in my picture(long thick white line). Match the white pointer mark to the balancer white mark with the timing light, while turning distributor. You probably know most of it anyway.
