whereis the timing indicator on and 86 brougham?
OK, This may sound like a dumb question, and I'm usually really good with doing my own work on my cars, but I gotta tell ya. I can't find the timing indicator on my 86 brougham ( 307 california) to see where the timing gun needs to be pionted, so I can check the timing...can someone tell me where I should be able to see it from ? ( drivers side, passenger side between this and that etc) I fear someone long before I got it may have taken it off and never replaced it.. there is evidence of a front cover removal at some time in it's history ( old dried gasket looking sealent stuff oozing around the cover) I've had the car nearly 2 years, but have only put 2500 miles on it, and it drove so perfectly when I got it, I never did a tune up.. but now I have a little pinging I wanted to see about, and this is how my frustration came about today.

Re: whereis the timing indicator on and 86 brougham?
Thanks Joe, that's just the info I needed. went ahead and ordered another from the loacl Cad dealer ( I figured a used one would be pretty brittle by now, and probably fail pretty quickly)
When it comes in this week, I will install and set my timing..
