You're using a timing gun on a '97? :confused:

What makes you think the timing changed from the car sitting for an hour :confused: I'd start off by looking at TFI/dist cap/rotor/plug wires/plugs/coil, vacuum hoses off, check sensors for proper operation (TPS, MAF, ect...), fuel pressure in correct range(could be fpr or fuel pump), check for error codes.
