Obviously you're talking about degreeing in the cam ?? not ignition timing ? If its degreeing in the cam I feel it safe to say that most guys that build their own engines ( in thier garage ) dont use degree wheels. Its a good idea but just not always done. If you dont have one then just follow your timing chain/gears instructions, most set them straight up.
