F-BIRD'88 A new stock replacement or perf SBC timing set will not be retarded.
This note refers to smog era Ford V8's like the 351C.
Normally you do not need to adjust the cam phasing.
If you want to play you must degree in the cam before moving it.
Do not guess. Do not monkey with without degree ing it.

The cam "advance" is already built into the cam.

Custom10 With both dots/marks @ 12 oclock you are at #1 cylinder at TDC, crank dot at 12 oclock and cam dot at 6 oclock (lined up close together) you are #6 cylinder at TDC.

As mentioned the set you have will work fine straight up.

If i set the dots on the gears straight up and down with each other will the timing be correct? If not can someone tell me where to set the gears at? Thanks
They are saying not to use the stock timing chain because it is retarded and is not adjustable.

The cloyes chain that you have will work fine. Install in the "straight up" position (no advance and no retard). Read the timing chain instructions, as there should be 3 different positions. Make sure you use the correct keyway for the crank gear for the straight up position.
