    if you're standing at the front of the car, its on the left hand side @ the 10-11 o'clock position.

    Jesus christ....some people.

    Yes they come with one. It just might be dirty. Grab a light, look the near the balancer where ryclef said and clean it off.

    well my timing was exactly at 14 degrees :dancing6: kind of amazing considering the bolt that holds down the dist was loose and i simply tightened it and check the timing. it was right where i wanted it!!!
