Timing


Without knowing if you have a V6 or a V8 motor I can't look up your TDC for your '86 Camaro, and if you don't have a timing gun that knowledge wouldn't help much anyway. However, you can tune your engine by ear and it may help the sluggishness. To do this mark the block and the distributor so you know how far you are advancing your timing once you start adjusting it. There is usually one bolt mounting the distributor into the block, loosen it until you can turn the distributor but it is still stiff enough to hold in place while the motor is running. Keep it in its original location and start the motor. Carefully, with a warm engine, gently turn the distributor ever so slightly clockwise until the engine isn't shuddering and is idling smoothly. It may take some trial and error to find the right spot. When you are confident your engine sounds right turn off the motor and tighten the bolt. Make a mental note of where you relocated the distributor to in relation to your other marks on the mount and the block. Then take the car out for a test drive. It may feel sluggish by too far advancing or retarding the timing. If so try again using the original marks as a reference. If this doesn't work, put your distributor back to its original location before troubleshooting further.

I have a 94 s10 blazer 4.3 and I had to remove the distributor but never marked it so now the timing is messed up. The distributor dose not have a #6 alignment mark so I cant get it working right. How do I...


Remove cylinder # 1 spark plug, # 1 is the front one on drives side, turn crankshaft pulley to TDC on compression stroke, you'll feel the comperssion at cylinder #1 spark plug hole, follow cylinder # 1 spark plug wire to distributor cap, mark outer part of distributor where # 1 sits, remove distributor and restabe distributor with rotor at mark you made, then set timing.

Rebuilt the head, replaced the timing belt. Car runs, but idles high. Does anyone know the procedure to reset the distributor timing?


3-7 degreese before top dead center. find your timing mark and mark it on the harmonic balancer mark it with chalk or white out. then unplug (not sure if the excels have a vacuum line on the distributor or a spark output wire (single wire you can break the connection on))loosen the hold down bolt (not take out) and rotate the distributor counter clockwise to advance or clockwise to ****** it. lock down the bolt and hook the vacuum line / wire back up.

Gm carb 305 timing problem


On the distributor, Check for advance weighrs. As your rpm increases the weights advance the timing. If they are rusted or a spring is streched or broken you will have to correct that. Hold the drive end and rotate thw rotor end back and forth to make dure the advance plate works freely and not sticking. It should spring back when you release it after turning it.What yr. is this rngine?Carburated, never mind. Ok, making sure the distributor is all free and cleaned up. Turn the dist. upside down and shake to make sure nothing falls out. You seem to have the timing thing down, but let me go through it just so I keep my train of thought.Actually I'm thinking out loud. #1 cyl on comp stroke-timing marks set to 8 degreesBTC. GO TO DISTRIBUTORdeternine #1 plug wire tower. Regardless of distributor body position as long as little tin window is around 6 o clock, Insert the distributor so the rotor is pointing at #1 tower.the mark you made so you know where that is..Should be @ 4 or5 o clock. When you drop the distributorin you will notice it turn so compensate soby dropping it a tooyh or two back.The rotor should be in the sweep of the #1 tower when you rotate the distributor. Hook up the coil wire and put the clamp on the distrutor but don't tighten it.With ignition on, #1 plug in #2 wire, lay the plug down on a good ground. Now slowly rotate the dristributor until #1 pops out a spark for you. You may have to go back and forth until you feel comfortable with when the coil fires. I don't know if you have a vacuum advance or not, but the vacuum advance points in the direction of distributor rotation. You want the spark to hit as you are rotating the distributor against the rotor rotation. Now the spark will hit at 8 degrees BTC before any weight or vacuum plays into it. Snug down your distributor and if you do have a little tin window, Stick the ole' in there and adjust the points to 28-32 degrees dwell. If no window, no sweat. It's an HEI, right? Let me know if you run into trouble. You can check your max advance if you like butgoing by that is assuming it's ok when it's not doing 3000 rpms. Better we assume the max is ok and know the bottom (start and low speed) is right on. Good Luck.

Distributor timing set


hmm ok
this will risk serious eletric shock..

start the vehicle
slowly turn the distributor left or right until you get the neat ideling tone and little to no vibration. If you turn it one way the car speeds up
the other way it slows down.. Find a place that you are comfortable with.

BTW some vehicles have the original settings marked, look for a colord(usually red) mark on the distributor and engine just line up these two.
