Trying to check timing on my '81 zxt but can't find the timing marks! There is a radial line on the crank pulley and three "nubs". With the car idling none of the aforementioned objects is anywhere near the timing tab on the pass. side of the block.
Am I hooking my light to the correct plug wire (the first cylinder closest to the radiator)? Could the car be 180 degrees out of time and still run well? How much out of time can the computer adjust for?
