Find cylinder one
Crank the engine with the plugs out,
feel for the compression stroke
mark the timinig mark on the crank.
Set your distributer with the cap off.
Or you can pull the valve cover and watch the valves for the timming mark.
that should get you close enough to get it started then adjust.

This is a bit pf a custom car type lash up and untill you can get some local advice here dont use the car as the excess fuel will wash oil from the cylinder walls causing piston /and ring damage ,You need someone local who can sort out and re-map the fuel injection system for you just for starters,Nice try and do admire greatly your determination in making something work but as iam in spain iam not a lot of help on this matter also owing to europeon vehicle law i wouldnt be allowed to do this for a rad vehicle as it detract from the certificate of homoglonation so a non standard vehicle just isnt allowed ,cannot even change the back lights for a fancy one let alone a engine

I have an 86 caprice 305 engine in a 37 chev. had the garage set the timing and it is now backfiring thru the carb. the guy didn't check a book for the right setting . what is the ign. timing for that...


This is simple ... you paid to have it done right ... you say you know the mechanic didn't check the specs ... take it back and make him fix it or get yor money back. Call the cops if necessary. This condition is very dangerous.

Will borgwarner t5(1996) bolt up to SBC 305(1992)?


NO not a direct bolt up and don't even know of a kit to do it

what would make you think that a trans made for a 4 cyl would be able to handle a V8's power anyway

what would make more sense would be a engine and trans and transfer case from say a 92 blazer dropped in a isuzu rodeo now that's possible with some cuttin and bendin and fabracatin that would be a good project
