There is two types of pump,Im sure the later ones exits on the right.
Had this on my mates Cougar last year but it was all on the left side also covered by the hose, managed to get in to time it up with a gun but its a struggle, then set it up properly on/after a road test
Most street engines are best set up by listening, "response of the throttle" and performance/driveability , but you have to have some idea what to do
thanks.problem with swapping pumps,is the cars set up for the outlet being on the side it is.no room to swap over now.
i can prob run it up without the front on the car,so maybe be able to get a timing light in at n angle
Just put a new fixed pointer plus mark the pulley where you can get to it?
could you not put some more timing marks in a place that's easer to use
didnt think of that.thanks
You can buy timing tape like this to put onto the pulley and do as kapri says put a new fixed pointer.
There are various types of pointers and different markings on harmonic balancers on 302's. If you believe the markings on the one on my Ranchero the timing should be about 100 degrees out!
Like English Impala says the parts from early cars fit later cars. The only way to be sure is nip No1 plug out and put a cable tie or screw driver down the plug hole to feel the piston coming to TDC ( don't get it stuck !!! ), if you've got the inlet manifold off you can look down the No1 inlet port otherwise you need to take the RH valve cover off watching the inlet rocker closing just to make 100% sure you're on firing No1. Once you are you can put the timing mark where you want on the crank pulley and your new pointer. Pete.
