I've got my 87 set at 9 degrees. IIRC the timing marks run from the bottom, closest to the drivers side, up,
-2
0
+2
+4
+6
+8
+10

I think there are a couple more past +10, but you won't need them.

Unplug the coolant tempature sensor too,this is one step of checking the timing on Chrysler products that can be timed with a timing light.
