IH-4cyl w/ dlco-rmy dist.eng-40 ovr bor,hi er comp. hed,hedr,msd coil,points at .017-turns ovr no start,new balst res.,rotr,dist cap.Do I need to open points more? Had dist. out & , time to 0*TDC?

point gap should be around .021-.025" and timing should be set at 10 degrees BTDC static
using feeler gauges is always difficult to get it right so use a dwell meter as that is what point gap is all about

the angle of revolutions that allow maximum amount of time for the field current to saturate the coil and produce the highest voltage possible for the plugs
check that the condenser is not shorting out at the points
to check the system pull the coil lead out of the distributor cap and turn on the ignition
then using something insulated open the points manually
there should be a spark at the points and a spark from the ft lead to ground ( head , block etc )
If there is no spark across the points then they are shorting out and you need to check for insulated installation
to do a static timing, place the crank mark at 10 degrees btdc, turn on the ignition and move the distributor body until the points just open ( noise or spark across the points ) lock the distributor down at that point and that will be 10 degreess on the timing light at idle ( 650--750 rpm manual , 850--950 auto)

1997 5.7ltr gm truck...wont start. Replaced fuel pump, and relay. Has a carbon build up in the throttle body. Turns over/wont start

check for spark if there is no fuel coming out of injectors you can borrow noid lights from orielies auto parts check the injectors for pulse width if you have no pulse your computer is bad if vyou have no spark remove dist ributer cap and see if rotor turns while cranking if it does check for spark between coil and dist if no spark you more then likely have a bad ignition module

Cranks but will not start

verify the pink to the coil is "hot" from key if yes i'd say the EST module in the distributor is breaking down. the fact it does run eliminates the ECM. and that it will crank eliminates the fuseable links for the starter circuit. pop the dist cap two 5.5 mil screws hold the module down. dont wipe off the dielectric grease. not sure price of new one but they are thesame for 4.3l 5.0l 5.7l wrecking yard cheap place for complete dist if yours is all oily inside( shaft wears inside like valve guide allows oil up into dist) that does it no good. no now you state its died ....yea module

1997 chevrolet blazer does not have spark in the spark plugs I already replaced the crankshaft sensor and still wont start

if it has a distributor, it is most likely the ignition module inside thats shot. call an auto parts store. and I think they can test them to be sure if its bad or not. check the cap and rotor also ! you can turn dist. a bit if timing is off. theres a hold down bolt underneath dist just loosen it. just so you can turn it to where it runs the best! then tighten and try it. if not the module. make sure power is going to dist. also make sure dist. shaft is turning, in dist. hope this helps.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.

you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.
