    Tools: Timing light, dizzy bolt wrench (looks like an L)
    What to do:
    Disconect the spout connector....Located next to the MAF silver in color
    Hook up timing light
    loosen dizzy bolt
    turn dizzy until you reach what ever degree you wish
    Tighten dizzy bolt and recheck timing
    reconnect spout connector
    *Note if advancing timing you must use highest octane available most case 93**

    it also helps to know howto use a timing light properly. if you get one with the little dial on the back what you do is paint a white mark on the 0 on your balancer with white out. After removing the spout, hook the light to the number 1 spark plug wire. Start the car. turn the dial on the light to where you want your timing..probly like 14* would be fine. Then turn the dizzy until your white mark lines up with the pointer on the motor and youre set.
