fuel injection & timing

92 blazer 4.3l "w"
ok i just adjusted my timing but im not sure if i have it correct the label under the hood says 0 degrees but the little metal tab that has hash marks
just says 12,8,4, Before. so i guessed put the timing a little befor the 4?....is that correct.
also "doc".....you told me where the fuel pressure regulator is by the injectors but im afraid to open up the whole "vortec" looking thing that hold everything in. where do i start there seems to be alot of bolts. etc. and is there a seal. im not afraid of big jobs i just don't want to screw it up or get in over my head with out the supplies ready.

Did you unplug the EST wire prior to setting the timing? Also, your timing tab should have 12, 8, 4, 0, +2, +4, etc. to indicate before and after TDC. You want your's set to 0* BTDC (aka TDC). If you didn't unplug the EST your timing will be all off.

it
If you have a "W" engine, it's CPI and not TBI. The instructions I gave were for a TBI engine so for god's sake ignore them! He he he he. I would highly recommend going to Autozone, NAPA, etc. and buying a Haynes or Chiltons for your truck prior to digging into the fuel system. They run about $15 and are well worth the $$$ for first timers.
How's the oil look? Milky at all?

I have the 89 TBI version of your motor, and guarantee that the markings are there. Scrape the gunk, and realize that it will probably be blocked by the magnetic pickup mont tube that teh factory attached to the timing cover.
