    All 4.3s are GM engines, but if the outdrive is Yamaha, your entire setup is considered a "Yamaha" I/O.

    If you're going to keep that OMC Cobra, please for the love of everything good in the world, get an OMC factory service manual. Not a Clymers, Not a SELOC. You can find them on eBay.

    First, do you have a jumper to connect to the distributor to lock the timing down? If you do, use the jumper and set the timing at 8BTDC. If you do not have a jumper, then you cannot set the timing.
