Question about 1983 Chevrolet Chevy
I have no way of setting the number one piston to the top.
if i could do that I'd have no problem setting the distributor.
i have a 1981 Chevy Van 1/2 ton with a 305 motor.
i cant even take the valve cover off there''s to many hoses.
i cant even pull the motor.
is there any other way of putting the piston to the top
Turn the engine by hand till the timing mark on the pulley is aligned with 0 on the timing scale (right side of pulley) If the rotor is pointing at the rear of the engine, turn one more time...it is now pointing at #1.
cylinders are 1,3,5,7 on drivers side, 2,4,6,8 on passenger side (front to back) Order is 18436572.
