Chevy 350 Timing
We are trying to set the timing on my street rod. The #1 piston is at the top of the compression stroke; the timing mark is on the pointer at about 2 degrees advanced; we adjusted the distributor and set the rotor arm right at the #1 contact. When we start the car and put the timing light on it, the timing mark ends up on the other side of the water pump @ about 25-30 degrees retarded! Obviously, we cannot rotate the distributor enough to compensate and get the timing mark back on the pointer. What do we do next?
