No, only the tan wire. I believe the wire should have a black stripe on it also. There should also be a connector on to. It's been a while sence i've done but i dont remember where the connector is located.

New spark plugs, new spark plug wires, new distibutor, new distibutor cap, new coil, new coil wire still not getting any spark why?


I know you list a new distributor, but the pick up coil (inside the distributor) is what will trigger the coil for spark. Located under the rotor, it needs to be checked at the harness for voltage (key on) and measure resistance in the PU coil itself using an ohm meter. Check the harness for breaks or damage, there really is nothing else that might cause this unless you have a complete failure in your engine computer (located next to the battery).

What is the ignition timing for a 95 Chevy pick up 5.7L engine? What wire do I unplug to set ignition timing?


The timing is to be set at zero TDC.The connector is on the passengers side under the hood against the fire wall.There might be a plastic cover over it.It is a tan wire with a black stripe.Sometimes it will be in the passengers side under the dash.by the blower motor.Same colors on the wire.The check engine light will come on when the connector is unplugged but it will go off after it is plugged back in and the key is cycled on then back on or start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Changing pickup coil


You have to remove the distributor from the engine then remove the distributor shaft from the distibutor housing, then you can remove & replace the pickup coil. Make sure you marke the exact location of the distributor body in relation to the intake manifold and note exactly where the rotor is pointing in relation to the distributor cap. I always set the timing marks on the front pulley at zero and make sure that the rotor is pointing at the #1 plug wire terminal on the cap before removing any distributor as it makes getting it in time easier if you lose your marks. You should reset the ignition timing when you have it all back together again as you'll most likely be off a few degrees. Some of these distributors had problems with the magnets in the distibutor shaft that would mimic a failing pickup coil and they were prone to drive gear wear. If you suspect any of those problems it's often easier to replace the entire distibutor with a reman unit.

Where can i get the specs for ignition timing on a 1989 GMC K1500 Pickup


Note: The Timing Connector breaks out of the engine wiring harness conduit adjacent to the distributer. It is a single wire sealed connector that has a tan with black stripe lead.
Note: Timing specifications are listed on the Vehicle Emissions Control Information label under the hood. Always follow the Vehicle Emissions Control Information label procedures first before using the following procedure. PROCEDURE:
Set timing under the following conditions:
  • Normal operating temperature.
  • Air cleaner installed.
  • A/C "OFF".
  • Transmission in neutral.
  • Disconnect SET TIMING connector (tan/black wire) located in the harness close to the distributor. DO NOT disconnect the 4 wire connector at the distributor.
  • Connect timing light and adjust as necessary by loosening hold down bolt and rotating distributor.
Base Timing, with Manual and Automatic Transmissions: 00(TDC)
  • Tighten hold down and recheck the timing.
  • Stop the engine and connect SET TIMING connector.
  • Clear ECM trouble code by disconnecting ECM power source.

How do you set the timing on a 350 chevy engine in a 1995 G20 van?


If the distributor hasn't been taken out, the timing can be set manually but you have to disconnect the distributor wire behind the glove box inside the cab. Tan wire with white tracer it is taped up to the a multi wire harness but is the only one with a single plug. Disconect the plug and use your timing light on the timing mark to set timing per specs. Rotate the distributor as needed to advance or retartd as required for the correct setting. tighten the dizzy clamp and plug the tan wire back together. The computer will now be fooled asd to what the base timing is and advance from there.
Contrary to popular belief, 96' and up do not have this wire. Timing has to be done with a programmable scanner.

Hope this helps.
