What do the timing marks say?

On the timing covers, it says BTDC (below top dead center) on the top cover, and below it, does it say 10 or +0 (as in degrees) and T? I think I'm blind :sad: I messed with my timing more today (advanced it) and I want to make sure I'm not running my car too lean.

You will have to either look at the emissions label on the underside of your hood, or you will need to obtain a repair manual to understand this information.

I recommend getting the Chilton's series for your vehicle. These books, in my opinion are the best when it comes to making self repairs to your vehicle.

Hope this helps.

I understand it all, I just can't read exactly what it says because of the angle and size of the script. I only figured out the BTDC from the Chilton's manual. Nobody else here seems to know either. I guess I'll have to break down and take the stupid covers off...pita.
