Can you if so how do you set timing with only using btdc and distributor on a 94 4runner


Ignition timing manual setting 1994 Toyota 4 Runner.
- Remove the distributor cap.
- Pull up the hand brake, place the vehicle in P or Neutral.
- Rotate the crankshaft pulley with a suitable tool to bring the timing mark at 5 degrees BTDC and the reluctor position in front of No. 1 position in distributor.
- Remove the rotor and adjust the distributor (by loosening two distributor locking bolts) in such a way that the No. 1 reluctor tooth just cross the G1 pickup coil notch in the direction of rotation in the distributor.

How to remove distributor on 1984 monte carlo 305 v8


bring engine to top dead center #1 with the timing marks. remove distributer cap and note position of rotor direction and mark on the distributor housing were the rotor is pointing. also mark the position of the distributor mark to a position on the motor, then unbolt the distributor holding bolt and remove. pull up on the distributor and note which way the rotor moves as you pull the distributor out. again mark where the rotor is pointing when the distributor is out. the reason for the marking of rotor position and distributor position is so when you reassemble you line up the marks to get it into the proper position when the distributor is back in place. then you have to check the timing and set. as far as the pickup coil remove the distributor gear lock pin remove the gear and remove the distributor shaft to replace the coil. reassemble in reverse order.

How do you set the points on a196 cu. in motor


Mark the position of the distributor. Remove cap. Loosen the distributor hold down bolt.and turn distributor to raise the points cam follower to one of the lobes on the cam. Remove the screw that holds the points assembly. Remove points with the capacitor attached. Put you new points in the same position as the ones that you removed. Points should have .030" gap. Tighten points- hold-down screw. Turn the distributor to the original (marked) position. Tighten distributor hold-down bolt. You should now be able to start, but you may need to set the timing.

How do i replace the distributor on a 1500 chevy silverado


Usually they have one bolt holding them in, it is at the base of the distributor. Take off the cap and undo the bolt and lift it out.
You should not be able to put a distributor in wrong as they will only fit in one position. The base of the drive shaft has an offset connection. Make sure you mark the timing position before you take it out.

REMOVE DISTRIBUTOR FOR A 1996 GMC JIMMY


Check this procedure...
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, remove the air cleaner.
  3. Tag and remove the spark plug wires and the coil leads from the distributor.
  4. Unplug the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  5. Loosen the distributor cap fasteners and remove the cap.
  6. Using a marker, matchmark the rotor-to-housing and housing-to-engine block positions so that they can be matched during installation.
  7. Loosen and remove the distributor hold-down bolt.
  8. Remove the distributor from the engine.

INSTALLATION
Engine Not Disturbed
  1. Install the distributor in the engine making sure that the matchmarks are properly aligned.
  2. Install the hold-down bolt and tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Install the distributor cap and attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  4. Install the spark plug wires and coil leads.
  5. If removed, install the air cleaner assembly.

Engine Disturbed
(see Figure)
  1. Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the engine using a socket wrench on the large bolt on the front of the crankshaft pulley. Place a finger near the No. 1 spark plug hole and turn the crankshaft until the piston reaches Top Dead Center (TDC). As the engine approaches TDC, you will feel air being expelled by the No. 1 cylinder. If the position is not being met, turn the engine another full turn (360 degree). Once the engine's position is correct, install the spark plug.
  2. Using a long screwdriver, align the oil pump drive shaft in the engine in the mating drive tab in the distributor.
  3. Install the distributor in the engine.
  4. Install the distributor in the engine making sure that the matchmarks are properly aligned.
  5. Install the hold-down bolt and tighten the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  6. Install the distributor cap and attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor.
  7. Install the spark plug wires and coil leads.
  8. If removed, install the air cleaner assembly.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
