(hi thomas - i'm finally going to start my 88 up this aftn.)
what you are saying is what i was trying to ask. i thought Chaosmosis might be referring to the driver's position inside the car. your foto is showing Atdc so the timing marks are retarded.
Chaosmosis, stand facing your car and where the 0l0 mark is what side is it on right or left and estimate what number it is near. 5, 10 etc:
1972 350sl Red/Blk 117k
1988 420sel charcoal/Blk 140k
1987 420sel gold/tan 128k
