Hopefully this should be a cheap solution to fix the problem. Your timing is a little off. You need to adjust your distributor. First start your car. Then loosen the bolt on the cap. slowly turn the cap until the engine evens out and it sounds proper. Tighten the bolt on the cap. Turn off the car and everything should be good from there. Hope this helps.

How do i know what alternator I need for my 1992 camaro?

I do not know specifically the alternator but all you have to do is call a parts shop and tell them the year, make and model. They will let you know what you need. You can also go to an online store like NAPA or Carquest and input the same information to get the part number and pricing.

What engine of other cars could fit in Chevy caprice 82-85,

almost every rear drive drive full size used the 305 V8, so u can get an engine from a Buick La sabre, Pontiac bonneville and firebird, also Oldsmobile 88, and don't forget Camaro. any 305 chevy V8 will bolt in, also the 350 V8 will bolt in, this is a much better choice..

What is the timing set at for a 1991 Camero 305 V8 ?

Try 0 degrees. It should state it on the radiator cover, but mine didn't. I tried 10 advance and it started real hard. I think you need to disconnect the single wire terminal near the distributor/coil that sticks out of your harness wrap before you set timing and reconnect it afterwards. That's what I recall from my TPI car and this TBI car seems to have the same electronics. Good luck.

sounds like the fusable link which feeds power to the ignition switch has gone to the happy hunting ground. this fusable link is bolted to the starter motor battery terminal along with up to four others.
