Also verify that you have the right timing pointer. Older vehicles used a tab (or tube) on the timing cover that pointed straight up, but newer vehicles (early 70's and up) used a tab at the 2 o'clock position. The balancer and pointer need to match. You can also get an adjustable tab that bolts on to the timing cover bolts if the old one is way off.
