Have you checked to see if the damper has moved internally (i.e. the 
rubber ring has broken)?
I would set the engine up at top dead center and see where the pointer 
I believe that the timing marks on the later engine matched a notch on 
the damper with a graded pointer sticking out from the timing chain 
cover at about the 11:00 position looking at it from the front.  Not 
sure whether it's AM or PM....
