Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada
I have a '96 Bravada with a 4.3L 262 v6. The distributor was disturbed while removing the lower intake manifold, but wasn't marked beforehand. I found compression in the number 1 spark plug hole, took the belt off and hand cranked the crankshaft pulley to line up the timing marks, and set the distributor, which appeared to point towards number one spark plug. When trying to start, it was backfiring through the intake, which seems to suggest 180 out. I picked up the dist. and turned it 180, dropped it back down, and it started but ran VERY rough, so it is still out of time. The distributor is non adjustable on this model. Am I missing something or doing it in the wrong order? Help Please!
Sounds like your off just one tooth, try pulling up dist. and back it up one tooth( counter clockwise) and try it again. When you reinstall the dist. it always goes in just before #1 not right on #1. Your in the ball park.

You have to get # 1 up on compression, have the 2nd line on damper line up with the notch on timing cover.
the rotor button must point to the number 6 on the dist case. It has a number 8 and a 6. When this is lined up, the rotor will be pointing at number 1. Lokk at the way the terminals cross over in the dist cap,
let me know if this works.
