    is this a DOHC ZC engine? if so, with the top bolt on the distributor in the center of the slot, the ignition timing should be real close to 16 degrees - turn top of distributor toward firewall to advance, toward radiator to retard - if it is not real close to 16 with top bolt in center of slot, your intake camshaft is probably off one tooth

    Oh yeah i don't have timing marks For 16 degrees probably should have told you guys that, that is the only reason i asked for timing degrees so i can set it with a gun that i can dial the degrees
