Loren, if timing is that simple and a timing advance
gueage is not always needed, then this sounds like the
old "Turn the distributer by hand until the power is
right" on a beetle after getting to TDC.
Once your 3 timing marks are lined up, just adjust the
pump by hand.

My motor were most likely not timing, but clearance. 
If the motor seemed to run fine, power was good, no
smoke, then timing was pretty close and I was
splitting hairs at that point.

Thanks for the lesson on timing 101.
