Whoops. Wrong engine firing order. My bad.

But the procedure for finding and aligning #1 TDC is still the same and you need to verify that.

How many different sets of timing scales are marked on your harmonic balancer? Mine is an aftermarket and it has a couple different ones so you need to make sure you are using the right one because that'll throw you off.

there is only one set of timing marks on my balancer. it looks to be an OEM. I am thinking maybe it is for a windsor or something...
