the white mark is the TDC mark. time to the middle or the last mark. i personally run more than 18* base timing. but thats what i do, you on the other hand are a differnt person.


are you advancing the timing? using an old style light gun or what>

No. I am not trying to advance the timing. I am using a old style light gun. I have just installed the zex kit on my car and was trying to make sure it was perfectly in time. I don't have a hayne's manual and couldn't find a clear answer through searching. I know this is a newb question but I wanted a clear defined answer before I did something that I would regret. (ex. accidently advancing and possibly causing detonation)

The upper most white mark is TDC. The other marks represent degrees BTDC. That red mark I believe is 16 degrees BTDC which I am pretty certain is the what the timing should be set to.

I'd have to consult a manual or an article on here for sure.

The upper white mark should be TDC and the middle mark in the group of three is (red mark) 16 degrees BTDC, the other two marks are 2 degrees either way... So 14 degrees and 18 degrees.

Just to add a question, to run lower octane gas do you advance or retard the timing? Which way closer to TDC or higher degrees like 18 BTDC?

Thanks

To run low octane gas, you get a non vtec.

The ECU in a GSR/ITR will automatically retard the timing and decrease performance if you want to put the cheap stuff in.

if you want to advance your timing, you better run with either 89 or 93 fuel. because using lower octane gas when advance ur timing in a long term will cause ....(damn, i forgot the freakin' word). Btw, if ur using the old style gun, you can only see 3 marks (if I remember correctly) which are white, black and orange (or red).

There are 3 types of timing light: dial (advanced), digital and inductive. The inductive is the most simple one and is preferred to "old style gun"
