POINT TYPE IGNITION SYSTEMS

  1. Locate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the front of the engine.
  2. If they appear dirty, clean the timing marks with a wire brush. Once clean, apply white paint to the marks to make them more visible.
  3. Attach a dwell meter/tachometer to the engine.
  4. Attach a timing light according to the tool manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Unfasten the distributor vacuum line at the distributor and plug the vacuum line. A small bolt, center punch, golf-tee, or similar object is satisfactory for a plug.
  6. Check to make sure that all of the wires, whether disconnected or attached to the timing light or tachometer, clear the fan and belts.
  7. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature.
  8. Adjust the idle to the correct setting, if needed.
  9. Aim the timing light at the timing marks and depress the trigger on the light. If the marks on the pulley and the engine are aligned when the light flashes, the timing is correct. Turn OFF the engine, then remove the tachometer and the timing light. If the marks are not in alignment, proceed with the following steps.
  10. Loosen the distributor lockbolt (a special distributor wrench is available) just enough so that the distributor can be turned with effort.
  11. With the timing light aimed at the pulley and the marks on the engine, turn the distributor in the direction of rotor rotation to ****** the spark, and in the opposite direction of rotor rotation to the advance spark. Align the marks on the pulley and the engine using the flashes of the timing light.
  12. When the marks are aligned, tighten the distributor lockbolt and recheck the timing to make sure that the distributor did not move when you tightened the lockbolt.
  13. After timing has been set, tighten the distributor hold-down bolt to 17–25 ft. lbs. (23–34 Nm).

While pointing the timing light at the timing marks, the other hand can rotate the distributor body to reach the correct alignment

    DURASPARK/NON-EEC SYSTEMS


    1. Locate the timing marks and pointer on the crankshaft pulley and the timing cover. Clean the marks so they will be visible with a timing light. Apply chalk or bright-colored paint, if necessary.
    2. Place the transmission in P or N. The air conditioning and heater controls should be in the OFF position.
    3. Disconnect the vacuum hose(s) from the distributor vacuum advance and plug the hoses.
    4. Connect a suitable inductive timing light and a tachometer according to the tool manufacturer's instructions.
    5. If equipped with a barometric pressure switch, disconnect it from the ignition module and place a jumper wire across the pins at the ignition module connector (yellow and black wires).
      NOTE: To set timing correctly, a remote starter should NOT be used. Use the ignition key only to start the vehicle. Disconnecting the start wire at the starter relay will cause the TFI module to revert to start mode timing after the vehicle is started. Reconnecting the start wire after the vehicle is running will not correct the timing.


    6. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. Check the initial timing by aiming the timing light at the timing marks and pointer. Refer to the underhood Vehicle Emission Control Information (VECI) label for specifications.
    7. If the marks align, proceed to Step 9. If the marks do not align, shut OFF the engine and loosen the distributor hold-down clamp bolt (special tools are available for this job). Start the engine, aim the timing light and turn the distributor until the timing marks align. Tighten the distributor hold-down clamp bolt and check the timing again.
    8. Remove the timing light and tachometer.
    9. Unplug and reconnect the vacuum hoses. Remove the jumper wire from the ignition connector and reconnect, if applicable.
      NOTE: Some early vehicles may use Duraspark III ignition module with an Electronic Engine Controls (EEC-lll). This type of system and base timing is not adjustable.

    TFI-IV EEC-IV SYSTEMS


    1. Locate the timing marks and pointer on the crankshaft pulley and the timing cover. Clean the marks so they are visible. Apply chalk or bright-colored paint, if necessary.
    2. Place the transmission in P or N. The air conditioning and heater controls should be in the OFF position.
    3. Connect a suitable inductive timing light according to the tool manufacturer's instructions.
    4. Disconnect the single wire inline spout connector or remove the shorting bar from the double wire spout connector.
    5. Start the engine and allow it to warm up to normal operating temperature.
      NOTE: To set the timing correctly, a remote starter should NOT be used. Use the ignition key only to start the vehicle. Disconnecting the start wire at the starter relay will cause the TFI module to revert to start mode timing after the vehicle is started. Reconnecting the start wire after the vehicle is running will not correct the timing.


    6. Adjust the idle speed, if needed.
    7. Check the initial timing by aiming the timing light at the timing marks and pointer. Refer to the underhood Vehicle Emission Control Information (VECI) label for specifications.
    8. If the marks align, proceed to the next step. If the marks do not align, shut off the engine and loosen the distributor hold-down clamp bolt (special tools are available for this job). Start the engine, aim the timing light and turn the distributor until the timing marks align. Shut OFF the engine and tighten the distributor hold-down clamp bolt.
    9. Reconnect the single wire inline spout connector or reinstall the shorting bar on the double wire spout connector. Check the timing advance to verify the distributor is advancing beyond the initial setting.
    10. Remove the inductive timing light.

Why wont the headlights won't go on


It can have a bad headlight switch, but most often it is a bad high beam switch on the floor.

Turn on the headlights and press the high-beam switch off and on a few times, if the headlights flash, flicker, or start working again then replace the high-beam/dimmer switch.
