Mark the balancer with a white paint marker on the TDC groove, there is a small plug over on the d/side inner fender has a small "dummy" plug plugged into it remove that from the wiring harness plug, loosen the distributor hold down bolt, connect the timing light by hooking the battery leads up to the battery and the other clamp over the #1 spark plug wire, crank truck up and squeeze the trigger on the timing light while trying to locate your paint mark on the dampener, then rotate the distributor in either direction to line up that mark with the pointer thats on the timing chain cover per mnf specs if I remember its 10 degrees when you get it there plug that "dummy " plug back in truck should idle up, if so tighten down the hold down bolt disconnect timing light and close the hood youre good to go at that point!

You set the cam timing with the engine set to TDC, the cam wheels have a line which should be just to the left of 12 oclock, the ignition timing is controlled by the engine management system and is not adjustable.

How to set the timing on a1997 4.6 deville


There isn't any set timing procedure on the northstar engine, the engine control module uses information from various sensors and adjusts the timing for the present conditions. There are 3 spark curves in the module to adjust timing for the grade of fuel being used.

I need a fire timing order for a chevy astro van v6


THE FIRING ORDER IS AS FOLLOWS : 1-6-5-4-3-2.
CYLINDER NUMBERS (front-to-rear) :

To set ignition timing, ensure that engine is at operating temperature, (190 degrees or above), bypass EST (electronic spark timing) by unplugging the single tan wire with a black stripe from the distributor. Ignition timing should be set at 0 degrees or TDC (top dead center). If not, loosen distributor hold down bolt and adjust, then retighten.

I am having trouble setting the timing on a 262(4.3l)chevy vortec engine 1995


You have to put the Ignition Control (IC) system in the bypass mode by disconnecting the "set timing" connector. This is a single wire sealed connector that has a tan with black striped lead. The location of the "set timing" connector with a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controller is near the PCM connectors in the passenger compartment. Unplug connector (tan/black stripe) start engine set timing to 0 TDC, TURN OFF ENGINE, re-connect timing connector

2. With ignition OFF, connect an ignition timing light and a calibrated, expanded-scale tachometer.

4. Start engine, increase engine speed to 1600 RPM and check ignition timing. Adjust timing to specification listed on Emission Control Information label (if necessary). Tighten distributor hold-down clamp and recheck ignition timing.

5. Turn engine off and remove timing light and tachometer. Connect No. 1 spark plug lead, if disconnected. Unplug and connect distributor vacuum advance hose. Connect vacuum switch assembly wire connector.

NOTE: If timing light has an adjustable advance control feature, turn control to OFF position.
