1998 K1500 4X4. ENGINE WAS REBUILT THE TIMING MARKS ALIGNED DISTRIBUTOR IS THE SAME BUT NEW CAP. CODE P1345A SHOWS WITH A GROCERY LIST OF CODES THAT STEM FROM THIS ONE. TRUCK STARTS BUT TREMBLES, DRIVEABLE BUT NO POWER. HELP!!!!
Timing is off.classic symptoms of the timing being a few degrees off.. depending on how bad it is off you can try turning the distributor and see if it clears up if not just have to retime it just loosen the dist enough to give it a twist and see if it will clear up

You will not be able to twist the distributer cap on this truck. either the rotor is off one tooth from bottom of distributer or the distributer is bad (should be replaced if the engine had to be rebuilt).

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The radio may contain a coded theft protection circuit. Always make note of the code before disconnecting the battery.
Fig. Fig. 3: The distributor keyway is offset and can only be installed in one direction
If the camshaft or crankshaft has rotated during assembly, rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise until the white Top Dead Center (TDC) mark on the pulley aligns with the pointer on the engine cover. If the valve cover and upper timing cover have been removed, be sure the UP mark on the camshaft is facing up, and that the crankshaft TDC mark aligns with the pointer on the lower timing cover.
