Default Ignition Timing

Where is the info for Ignition Timing stored? If it is in the Factory Service Manuals, I can't locate the right section.

Is it in the Owner's Manual?

I guess the older KA 4cylinder is 15 BTDC (Before Top Dead Center) according to JUSTANSWER then 3 BTDC according to ANOTHER JUSTANSWER.

A post on NICOCLUB says 20 BTDC for the VG30E.

Is 20 BTDC correct for the VG30E?

What section of the manual is that in, if you don't mind me asking?

my truck is a 97 too, I found timing specs on EC-323, Under: Inspection and adjustment. page-463. I know I saw it somewhere else too but I couldn't find it just now.

1997 is for ka24e only. Vg30 was not available after 95. The pic below is from the 1995 manual in the vg30 section of the EF book.

Sweet! I knew it had to be in there some freakin' where!

So, your phone displays PDFs, takes screenshots, and uploads them to your Photobucket account? Maybe I need a new phone. My Razr V3 doesn't do any of that stuff.

Lame question but how did you get the FSM on the iPhone?

I have an iPad and would like to do the same!

Thanks!
