    Hey guys

    The flywheel on my 308 has the normal 7degree BTC and PM1-4 TDC mark, however, there is a 3 degree ATC stamping. What is it used for? Just curious. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    My recollection is this is the mark for European single distributor car- timed at 3 degrees ATC

    I would think the 3 degree mark is the next one (marked 3 degrees).

    (Which is used for timing advance/retard)

    1978 US version 308 have a stock 1000 RPM idle timing specification of 3 deg ATDC (when operating on the R2 points).

    Thanks. I didn't see that in my manual but makes sense.

    If you have the 150/78 OM for '78-'79 North American (a.k.a. US) version 308 B/S, see pages 14 and 73-77.

    I see it in the owners manual. I was checkted my workshop manual, which is for a Carbed 308 gt4, an it does say basic timing is 3 - 2 ATDC @ 1000 +\- 200 rpm and actually the illustration of the flywheel does show the 3 degree ATDC. The illustration I was looking at in my notes from the web doesn't have the 3 degree indicator and it has a 6 degree BTDC mark not 7. Must be from a different year, probably GTSI. My bad.
