Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? All Mercurys are cataloged by serial number, can I get that number so I can see exactly which engine you have? Next, are you trying to set crank to cam timing, or ignition timing?

It looks like you read my reply. Did you have your serial number handy or did you need to go and get it?
