First, be careful as you can damage your engine. Put it back where you thought it was, you should see marks. Have a helper turn the engine over, once you get it started, you can move the distributor slowly one way or the other until it idles properly. If in doubt, have a suitable mechanic come to you and help. Let me know....

What best position timing mark fly wheel plate land criuser 3fe engine to re install distributor


If it rattles,timing is too far advanced.Loosen the distributor bolt,Back timing to fastest idle,and advance it just a little to where the idle is changing slower.Not much tho.Lock the distributor bolt and drive it.If still rattles,do it again till it doesn't rattle.The rattle you speak of is called engine nock,because it's firing ahead of time too much.

What is the timing for a 1990 F 150 4.9 ?


it should be 10 degrees BTDC, the big notch is 10 BTDC, the plug gap is .o44, 4.9 engine 1-5-3-6-2-4--distributer rotation: clockwise, what i do is take out #1 plug, use a straw or similar object and put it very carefully in #1 plug hole on top of piston when 1 is all the way up. rotor should be at #1 on distributor.. have a person turn crank on damper pully in front of engine, until the rotor is pointing to # 1 in distributor, from there you can set the base timing. have a good day !!

My timing belt and water pump for Honda Accord 1990 was replaced and used the car for 2- 3 weeks. After driving about 15 minutes, entering the freeway, my car slowed down but the engine still running....


If you have never changed that distributor on your 1990 Accord, I would suspect it. Check for spark while cranking. The sensors inside the distributor would usually heat up, after 15-20 minutes of running, and would then die out, until the car is cooled off for a while. Look into that distributor.

Change plugs and wire and engine will not acclerate. This is a built 350 short block chevy with pro charger.


350 Chevy engine in what? 1990 Corvette? Who built it, did you?

Sounds as though you have plug wires wrong.
Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Distributor Ignition System:
Distributor rotates Clockwise. (Rotor)
Find Number 1 tower on distributor cap, go Clockwise with Firing Order.

Distributorless Ignition System:
VIEWING the engine from the Front of the car.

Spark plug wire connections along the back, starting from Left side going to Right side;
2-3-7-4

Spark plug wire connection towards the Front of the engine;
6-1-5-8

(To guess I would say you have 5 and 7 wires switched)

Left side cylinder order is 1-3-5-7, going from front to back.
Drivers side is Left side.
Right side cylinder order is 2-4-6-8, going from front to back.
