Default 87 360 timing adjustment

I'm trying to get my dad's d350 chasis truck w/flatbed running good. I have rebuilt the trash carb it has (carter AFB performance series), made sure all the vac lines are hooked up and in good condition, new fuel filter, and it even has an electric fuel pump to help out. I wanted to check the timing, but I can't see the timing marks on the balancer because the smog pump is in the way. I have no idea other than to try and set the timing by ear, but haven't tried this ever before, I've always used timing lights..

Anyone have any suggestions? This thing runs jam up until it warms up, and even then it only really acts up when you try pulling a hill...
