I have replaced the original inline 230 in a 1966 Chevy II Nova with a 250. I used the timing gear cover from the 230 and I am having a hard time getting the timing set (please don't giggle I am not a mechanic, this was a project for me and my ten year old son to try). Is there any way to use the timing marks on the 250 harmonic balancer with the cover plate of the 230 to find top dead center? Or can anyone give me an estimate of where the balancers mark should be? Once I get it to TDC I think the rest of it should fall into place with getting the distibutor set the right way.
have the same problem?
