double,triple,quadruple

double,triple,quadruple check that your cam timing marks and pulley timing marks line up exactly with the car off

set your dizzy at center with the bolts just loose enough to turn the dizzy by hand

start her up and heat cycle it at least once...
which is about 20 minutes or more until the fan comes on...
ground your service check connector (D4)
strap on your timing light
and make any nuance changes you wish

i recommend fixing any codes flashed on the check engine light first

they are very helpful when

they are very helpful when your car isn't running in time due to other sensors manipulating it thru the code in the ecu...

more specifically...an advance timing light...

in fact...there's no other way to tell while your car is running if it is in time or not...
unless you are tapping into your ecu

but for all intents and purposes...yes...you dont need one...
