Question about 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe
I used the distributor from my old engine , first i turned the crankshaft and lined the mark up with the mark on the block because there is no timing indicator on the front of the block,so the i installed the distributor with the rotor button pointing to the #1 spark plug wire (under the distributor cap) but when i crank the engine it wont start do anyone have a solution
Remove your #1 cylinder spark plug, and bring the piston to the top. Use a straw, or a screwdriver to see when the piston is on top. Place your distributor so the the rotor will point to the number one cylinder (you may have to move the oil pump drive shaft with a screwdriver). From there, you should get the engine to fire, then time it from there.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.
On the VG30i and VG30E engines, the distributor rotor tip should be in the 11 o'clock position.
