Right i prob shouldnt start a new thread incase a old one exist but im going to advance my timing...but i have no timing light. I was wondering if i could adjust it safely by ear and wait for a pinging then retard a bit to stop the pinging. Is this alright to do or can i really mess up my engine doing this?
Im in the uk btw so if someone does have a timing light and live in the south...may i borrow it? lol

No you cannot really do this by ear. Get a timing light. They are not expensive. Just get the cheapest inductive timing light you can find. If you can afford to put gas in your car, you can afford to buy a timing light.
Make sure to follow the factory procedure.
