Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I just got done putting in a new long block on my s-10, after countless hours jamming the engine in a hole to small for it to go i tried to start the engine and it wont start, I checked for fuel presure at the intake and its spraying, i checked the plugs and there wet, so i am geting good fuel, i am not however getting spark, i am 98% sure that the distributer is in the correct position, All worked great before replacement just had bad bearings in the old motor. Coil tests good, but doest produce any spark. ANY help would be greatly apprecited. CAN INCORECT DISTRIBUTOR ROTATION CAUSE NO SPARK, OR JUST SPARK AT WRONG TIME. NY HELP APPRECIAATED.
We have a 97 s10,, was backfirinf, pukin and spittin,, even dying in intersections,, changed a couple plugs, ran fine for 4 days and now won't start ( no spark but does get fuel ) any ideas???

Yes if the distrubutor is out one gear tooth is enough to keep it from firing at right time, let me tell you how to drop it in,first take out number one plug, should be front plug on drivers side, turn over motor slow bumping it with someone with a finger over the plug hole to see where number one is all the way up, when the piston comes up to blow off your finger,stop, take something to slid in plug hole to feel piston it up ,drop in the distributor where the rotor is pointing at number one one the distrubtor cap ,when cap is on the rotor is at number 1 on cap ,should crake there ,time with timing light then ,hope this helps you, thanks robert b.
