Question about Cars & Trucks
I need help installing my distributor, it is making my truck miss,backfire, and wont fire the cylinders in time. it is in a very tight spot near the fire wall also, please help me???
Hi,what you need to do is turn the bottom pully to the 0 mark then open the distibuter cap,the router arm should be pointing at number one cylinder,if not turn the bottom pully again untill the 0 is lined up,now the rotor should be pointing at the number one cylinder,if not take the distrib out and turn the rotor and put back in if it inlines with the number one lead then bolt it up so it can still just move by hand,get some one to start it up if it starts then put a timeing light on job done,if its trying to start turn the distrib clockwise if it,if it starts good,if not try turning the distrib anti clockwise,ether way it should start,again put timeing light on and when right tighten up distrib,hope this was some help.
