I'm not 100% sure where it is on your truck, but the bypass connector should be either on the passenger side under the heater box, or under the hood. It should have a tan/black wire on it. If you unplug that connector you should be able to set the timing.
Usually there's a decal under the hood that will tell you where the connector is.

I've got a '92 and I just looked. It's under the black plastic cover on the passenger side firewall (in the engine compartment). Like 4cams said, it's a black/brown wire with a black connector.
