My new front cover on a Buick 225 V6 has no timing scale on it. Anybody else have this problem? How did you solve it?

We use to just adjust it by ear & when the pinging went away.

Could check out www.g503.com they might have a scale/answer for U.

P.S. :nono:

:nono: yes advance the dissy till it pings under load (driving vehicle) then back it off until it just stops pinging.
after it gets hot shut it off wait a minute and if it cranks slow back it off a little more otherwise you have it as far advanced as your fuel or octane will allow :1thumb:

if its anything like the gm v6 in my jeep the scale is held on by2 screws, you could probably pick 1 up somewhere.

:shock2: i do believe we are talking about a motor produced in the early to mid 60's :scratch:
if you take your reading off of the crank :bounce: (which mark is adequate not accurate)
then go through the timing chain (that is old and not completely accurately attached by a machined key way)
:serenade: then through the camshaft gear (that is worn) onto the dissy gear (that is warn)
into the dissy that is very old and onto the plug wire. :sos:
how accurate is this?
use the drive and time method it is more accurate :good: and a lot less work :popcorn:
