Use the following to determine if the timing tab/mark is accurate:

DETERMINE TDC. Then MAKE A TIMING TAPE so you can see what the total timing, etc. is w/o needing a dial back timing light- which may or may not be accurate itself.

The problem w/doing track testing to set the timing, is that you really don't know where you are starting at. One run under severe, unheard detonation can ruin an engine- so you need to start at a safe timing setting and work up from there.

palmertree Sound like you are running the same thing that I am running in my truck. It was a must for me to run the 93 octane. I messed up my first build in 3 days buy running cheap gas. As far as timing goes I just had to play with it till it run right at rpm.
