Are you checking it with old timer timing light or advance-able type??

 

Have you checked to see the timing mark ( on pulley ) doesn't show up on other side of timing chain cover,,,i changed a chain AND PULLEY once and it showed up on the drivers side somehow... Engine still ran completely normal so i'm not sure if it was chain or pulley.

according to the manual, the timing marks are above the drive shaft pulley - which is where the fan is!

Oh,, i thought you were asking not making a statement..    Yeah it's a bitch just make sure you mark timing mark tab on front cover and v in the pulley with a welding paint stick real good and use adjustable timing light so you can really jamb that sucker in there.

 

You might have guessed why one would repaint the fan a bright color like white or like my idiot friend did,,, paint florescent orange stripes on the end like a WW2 airplane.. It won't hurt less but at least you will see it coming.

 

I'm also assuming J1300??

 when the engine is running you can see-ish through fan like one of those flipper picture movies ,, that is if you don't stick light into fan that is.
