Question about 1988 Chevrolet K1500
We are trying to set the timing on a 1987scotsdale and for some reason steeing it top dead and plugs and everything are acurate i am getting a screwy timing bounces around and i can't catch it... i pulled the distributer and tried reseting everything. is there a sensor or something i need to jump?
You need to put the computer in "limp mode" You do this by unplugging the timing connector on the firewall. It is Tan with a Black stripe. The bouncing is the computer controlling the timing and with it disabled, you can set base timing. Don't forget to plug it back in when you're done. Paul.

No. It is very Tough on these Models to set the Timing. I had a 87" Scottsdale Also and had the Same Problem. Just takes TLC.
