Basically the same as most vehicles, move the timing mark on the harmonic balance to the timing mark point, this is top dead center cyl 1. then line up the rotor button with a small notch in the rim of the dizzy, this should coincide with lead 1, you now are guaranteed to be on ignition stroke(compression stroke) slot the dizzy in remembering that the rotor will spin 1/8th or a turn backwards when installing. clip the dizzy cap on and voila readdy for a timing light. as long as the rotor button is facing towards the first leads terminal inside the cap tyou should be fine, hope this helped.

Turn your engine to number one compression stroke. The best way is to plug the spark plug hole with your finger, and then touch the key a little bit at a time, until it blows your finger out.The piston will be at the top, and valves will be closed. Then center your timing mark on the crank so it's on 0 on the guide. (it should be almost there, but you'll have to wiggle it a bit). Then, with the cap off your distributor, push it in so the rotor is going to be hitting in the same place as #1 on your distibutor cap. Install your cap and it should start. If not, move the distibutor slightly until it does. Adjust timing, and you're done.

Please i need diagram to 1986 nissam pickup 4wd drive z-24 8 plugs need help w the wiring from distributor to the plugs;need to know order they go back on my email andujarpena@hotmail.com. thanks


Okay you got it here another diagram. If you are misfiring clean out the distributor it has tendency to oil contaminate,or if your burning rich heavy black smoke its the fuel pump not producing enough pressure, Dont confuse this with the MAF sensor your injector is pulse width modulated.3_29_2012_7_20_47_am.jpg

I have a toyota cressida gli 6 1989 ,has spark and fuel,motor swings but just wont start


Where had you checked spark first? Is the distributor turning? This can be checked by removing the distributor cap and making sure the shaft is turning as the engine cranks. Have you checked that there is spark at the plugs? The ignition coil could be weak and still produce some spark but not enough to start the engine. Be cautious of all rotating belts and pulleys around the engine while working under the hood.

My 1987 Toyota Cressida jerks when stopped at lights and accelerates slowly.


sounds like your ignition timing is REALLY REALLY late, should be 10 degrees BTDC. also check the air filter as this could cause poor acceleration. those 5M-GE/7M-GE engines also want premium gas (91 pump octane or better) they run horribly on lower grade gasolines.

Firing order for a 1986 gmc s15


FIRING ORDERS

To avoid confusion, ALWAYS replace spark plug wires one at a time.

The most important thing to remember about the removal and installation of a distributor, cap or spark plug cable is that all wires MUST be labelled before they are disconnected. Keep in mind that these figures depict a firing order where the distributor cap terminals are relative to EACH OTHER only and they do not necessarily depict the tower positions in relation to the rest of the engine. This is true because any distributor which has been removed and reinstalled may have been installed with the No. 1 spark plug tower at any position (360 degrees) in relation to the rest of the motor, as long as the rotor aligned to the No. 1 tower when the No. 1 cylinder was at TDC of the compression stroke (valves closed, ready for the plug to fire). As long as the remaining wires were connected in the correct firing order sequence (depending on direction of distributor rotation) the engine will run. DO NOT EVER remove more than one wire from the distributor cap at a time unless you tag ALL wires and towers to assure proper installation.
