I have power to my coil but none coming out on my 84 351 Windsor brand new distributor coil is good module came on new distributor I need help ?


Since the coil is getting power you need to get a spark tester or pull a cord of one spark plug and lay it on the engine and have some crank the engine. You should see and hear a spark. If not check fuses and check the ignition module - that is the device that tells the the coil to send a spark. You could also remove the wire from the coil to the dist cap and look for a spark.

NO POWER TO THE DISTRIBUTOR ON 87 CADI DEVILLE THERE IS POWER TO CAP


I owned a similar 1986 caddy

12 Volts on pink wire to dist with key on

The top of the cap is the HEI Ignition Coil

Inside dist is the pickup coil (no crank sensor)
& ignition module with the 3 or 4 wires

Maybe the module failed- if you have no spark
at plug wires

How to install a distributor in 1976 oldsmobile 231 v6


Turn or line up, number one cylinder at top dead center
on compression stroke,not bottom dead center

Have the crank pulley timing line, in line with the
tab on timing cover at zero degrees

Turn the oil pump if you can't drop the dist in
the motor

Line up the dist to the correct position for the
firing order,you need that before you start

Draw a picture of wire positions & dist location
first

Will need the old fashion timing light to set timing
with vacuum hose of dist advance

86 gmc 2wd 305 slight cam. At initial start, engined fired and ran great for about 30 min or so at operating temp, then started stumbling and will no longer start. Spark was present at only 5kw though, not...


This works with the 5 prong module on an HEI ignition system with the coil that is mounted on the top of dist. The wires that come out of the back of the dist go to a spark controll module under the dash and they are junk. There is a conector on the wiring harness about 5" from the dist unplug that conector and run a jumper wire from the green wire to the black wire on the dist side and make sure you tape up all wires on dist side to keep them from grounding out. On the other side of the dist where your 12V goes in (batt conection) there are to wires piggybacked on top of each other disconect them from dis and plug only the pink 1 into dist at the batt conection. Where the wires on the back of dist run into firewall there should be a vacume line disconect and plug on engine compartment side. Thats how you do the bypass and the spark control module can be removed from under the dash if you want to but its not hurting anything to leave it there. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING MAKE SURE YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY. When all this is done you mite have to advance your timing 8-15 degrees. I had to advance mine 12 degrees. let me no if you have any problems. kyle yeo

Replacing spark plug wires


It's gotta be 5.7 V-8 . As u stand in front of the suburban facing the front bumper, there are 4 spark plugs on each side of the engine. The front (of the engine) plug on the drivers side, is plug #1, the front plug on the pass. side is #2, then back to driver side, next plug back is #3, back to Pass side, next plug is #4 etc. to #8. The distributor cap (spark plug wires go from dist. cap (9 wires on top) to each spark plug, Extra wire goes to coil, which sends spark to all wires). The wires fire in the following order: 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5. 7, 2. You will have to find where the #1 spark plug goes in the distributor cap, some (hopefully yours ) have a #1 on the top next too where the wire plugs in to the cap. If u find this u r good to go! Put #1 wire in, using a pushing/twisting motion, the wires go in in a clockwise order from #1 as u look down on the distributor. Wires to spark plugs go on w/ same push/twist. You should hear/feel a slight click or snap (not always though!) if inserted all the way. Let me know if this is enough info, if not I'll try to give u more. If u can't find where #1 goes on the dist. cap, stand on the driver side of engine, I believe #1 is at approx. 8 oclock position on the dist cap. Good luck!
