Hello;
The timing should be set at 6 BTDC. Be sure to set the dwell first, then the timing. Hope this helps.
Thanks;

Need spark plugs gap setting and timing setting for 1976 GMC C2500 sierra pickup truck


If you can't find any other guidance (placard under the hood, etc), go with .035 inches on the plug gap, and 8 degrees BTDC on timing, with the vacuum advance disconnected. If the engine pings at that setting, retard it to 4 - 6 degrees BTDC. These were pretty much standard settings for GM vehicles of the 60s and 70s.

I dont remember in what order from #1 plug to#6 do the wires go? on chevy 4.3 L


Firing order 1,6,5,4,3,2. To find number 1 plug at distributor set timing mark to top dead center on compression stroke and with distributor cap removed rotor will point to number 1 cylinder in cap. Also number 1 cylinder is on drivers side all the way to the front the next cylinder behind that is number 3 and then 5. So passenger side all the way from front will be 2,4,6 at the firewall. Number 1 plug wire will also be the second longest wire in most cases or as long as number 2 cylinder. Hope this helps.

Firing order for a 1999 chevy s10 pickup


I apologize for the late response...Due to the bad economic situation this site has had a substantial (+50%) increase in the number of questions being asked in the last four months.
I assume you have a 4.3L and not the 2.2L?

For the 4.3L:
Firing Order:
1-6-5-4-3-2

Cylinders:
6-----------5
4-----------3
2-----------1
(front of vehicle)

Distributor:
coil wire-->
-----6------->............<--------5-------
-----4------->............<--------1-------
-----2------->............<--------3-------
............(front of vehicle)

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
