I know this sounds dumb but...the pointer says "time" on the very edge of it and also has a notch and a hole. Where do I shoot the timing light??

I am using the stock timing pointer.

Where the point hangs over the harmonic balancer

The pointer is rather flexible, so setting to the pointer is not necessarily an acurate indicater of your timing. When you are at top dead center the pointer should be on zero. Then if you advance it to 14 it really is 14. Glen

I am using the stock balancer and stock pointer. Just trying to get a base line.

So I aim the light where it says "time"?

Thanks Blue Corona. Very misleading indeed, the notch is in a great position to time it from the side that's why I thought it could be the notch.

Thanks!
