SOURCE: how to install a distributor cap and rotor on a 1985 chevy truck?

I have had good luck with Echlin caps and rotors that are from NAPA.
You are going to need to mark your spark plug wires so you can get them back on the new cap in the right place. Tape with numbers on it or what ever you can come up with. There should be 4 screws around the lower part of the cap. Take your screwdriver and push down on the screw and turn like a quarter turn counter clockwise and you will see it release from the distributor. If you look at the new cap you will be able to see how it works. Once you have the cap off you will have to transfer the coil to the new cap. There should be 2 small screws on the top of the cap that hold the cover over the coil.
I think there are 4 screws holding the coil in to the cap and you will have to pull the wires and terminals out of the cap as you are removing the coil. Be careful when you retighten the screws in new cap.
When you replace the rotor you will see by looking at the bottom of it that it can only fit one way and lock on to distributor.
Just take your time. If you have any problems I will try to help.

SOURCE: Where is the wire that controls tach in 1987 Camaro?

If you have the one I'm thinking of, it is just to the left of the main power terminal on the cap (usually marked tach)

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

I just bought an 86 iroc camaro the distriburtor cap was just thrown on it how can i take it out and reposition it so that my engine will start..? it has a 700r4 tranny in it an that won't shift right...


im assuming we are talking about the distributor/before pulling out remove cap and with # 1 spark plug out turn engine until top dead center in #1 cylinder check rotor on distributor if it lines up with #1 wire then just need to make fine timing--if not unbolt the retainer under distributor and lift up distributor and rotate rotor so it lines up w/#1 wire replace dist and retainer dont completely tight try start and w/timing light adjust to proper time----transmission has a selector w/adjustable cable connection on drivers side
