Timing marks shown at
For the later markings (from '72 models), the most left is 5 ATDC, so TDC is
second from the left.
Yours with twin vac should be timed to the third from the left 5 BTDC (but
see note* about resetting idle when timing, and re-setting after).
Also, the throttle switch adjustment should be correct before doing the
timing (Bentley notes this).

Well... 2 forward, 27 back.
Found that my car was running on 3 cylinders. Fixed that and then went to
time the thing... 30 btdc at idle!!! So, loosen the distributor, spun the
thing and timed it at 5btdc w/ hoses unhooked. Put hoses on and can't get
over to 5atdc per specs for this unit. To top it off, now that I have 4
cylinders, I have smoke out the tail pipe! Had ZERO prior. Grrrrr'
I am trying to leave the drivetrain stock, but this hung is ticking me off!
I have less power now than on 3 cylinders.
I'm thinking I'm on the wrong timing mark. This is a 4 mark pulley. Which
is the TDC mark?
