Chevy Timing Tab ID? - See Photo

Hello, I have a timing tab that I can't read & was hoping someone could tell me what the degrees are on this one? I can read "0" but I can't read anything else to know what I am setting it at. The is the tab that sits at 12:00 and is welded on the timing cover on my 86 engine. Any help I.D.ing it would be very helpful and appreciated.

I found this in a Rod & Custom article

Hope it helps. Maybe try to get in there with a bit of laquer thinner or brake fluid to remove some of that paint. (Brake fluid works real well at removing paint. Don't ask, OK? )

The scale in in 2 increments. Each "outer" (downward pointing as viewed in your photo) point is 4 apart, so there are "outer" points for 4, 8 and 12 BTDC to the left of TDC (0) and 4 ATDC to the right of TDC.

The "inner" (upward pointing as viewed in your photo) points are at TDC (0), 6 and 10 BTDC.

Left and right are as viewed in your photo.
