Question about 1986 Chevrolet Camaro
Yes. There can be a crack in it that will short out, it can be crudded up with carbon, eroded away. A bunch of things. It won't start, and if it does, it won't run worth a bean. Hope this helps.

Inside the distributor cap you will see the terminals that correspond to the order of the spark plugs to which the charge from the coil on the central terminal is directed. Make sure these terminals are clean and that there are no tracking marks running on the inside of the cap between terminals. The 'absence' of a distributor cap will definitely cause a car not to start as the charge from the coil has no where to go. Check that the distributor arm within the cap is clean and that the contact points beneath the distributor arm assembly are clean and are separating the required distance when the rotation of the lobes on the distributor shaft open the breaker.

We did the same thing with ours. We have a 1985 Cutlass Supreme that we put a 350 Camaro engine in it. At first it would not start for anything we eventually had to take it to a mechanic and he said it was the timing and he fixed it. Now it runs great!
But yeah it is almost impossible to get chevy engine in a oldmobile if you are unsure of what you are doing.
