Did you lock it into 10*? Or just point a timing light at it.

And it would not idle? Many pulleys have two notches on the pulley, one at 0 and one at 10 degrees.

Yeah it won't idle the closer I get to normal timing. This pulley has just one notch on it. My '96 has two.

Does ten/gnd still work with MS? (Are you on MS? I forget) lock it into 10 with the spark settings.

Check for tdc, with a long extension and a dial indicator preferably. Then see if the pulley still reads tdc. If not, you can mark a new tdc with a chisel and hammer until you buy a new one.

I've done this already. I don't have MS (not yet at least, will be soon). I have verified TDC with the dipstick in #1, mark on the crank pulley still lines up with the 0 mark on the timing cover.

Just done with the front of the motor off, everything lined up perfect. Didn't even touch the belt, it was still timed.

CAS?

The timing marks move on older pulleys when they need replacement.

It's weird I'm having these timing issues. I don't understand why either; I have everything it takes to control fuel and timing.

Yeah but everything still lines up so it hasn't moved, even the notch on the crank pulley.
