Hi Jack, When setting timing on these engines open the diagnostic connector and place a bridge joining 'E' to 'T1' and then set. Without the bridge the timing will not adjust. Regards John

Hesitates under acceleration


Did you check the service manual for the proper way to set the timing? on some models you have to unplug a wire from the dist. to set the timing and then plug it back in after setting timing. Because the computer will change it if you don't do it correctly and the timing will be way off.

Hi,my name is bobby,i have an 71 gto 455 ho motor,i put it into a 79 t/a.i changed it from points dist. to a hei.im havin a real hard time settin the timing,the book says set it at 12 degrees btdc.im...


Put the timing mark on the balancer at 0 degrees with the piston at top dead center. (piston at the top with both valves closed). Follow the #1 spark plug wire to the dist. cap and set the dist in so the rotor lines up with the the # 1 wire. Make sure the dist. is "seated" all the way. You might have to turn the engine a little to get it to seat fully. You set the timing with a light AFTER you start the engine. If you put the dist. in in the right spot you need only turn it very little either way to start the engine.

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

What is the timing set at for my 1991 Camaro V8 305 ? Will someone answer me please ?


A 10 deg BTDC is the initial set and a 0 deg is ECM controlled timing at idle.
I assume you know how to prepare distributor for initial set.
Regards.
