You'll need to line up the 2 lines on the crankshaft pulley to the marks on the driver side of the timing cover. Then install the distributor completely into the motor and make sure that the rotor lines up exactly with the "6" on the distributor housing. You may need to use a long screw driver to line up the oil pump shaft with the distributor, so that the rotor lines up with the "6" on the ditributor housing when the distributor is fully seated in the motor.

How to install a distributor in 1976 oldsmobile 231 v6


Turn or line up, number one cylinder at top dead center
on compression stroke,not bottom dead center

Have the crank pulley timing line, in line with the
tab on timing cover at zero degrees

Turn the oil pump if you can't drop the dist in
the motor

Line up the dist to the correct position for the
firing order,you need that before you start

Draw a picture of wire positions & dist location
first

Will need the old fashion timing light to set timing
with vacuum hose of dist advance

Installing distibitor 1997 5.7vortec


with # 1 piston (front piston on drivers side) on tdc compression stroke place distributor in pointing at the front of the drivers front tire as it drops in it should point roughly at the # 1 piston as it rotates clockwise as it drops in , the cam gears have to mesh so dont force it . if it wont drop into place try a small bump of the starter while applying light pressure down on the dist.it should drop into place and then lock it down a bit . get #1 piston back on tdc compression stroke make sure the power wire is off the dist . the big red 1..you dont want it having spark yet. if it goes into place then set your cap and wires back in and time it with timing light .remove vacum hose from vacum can on side of dist and plug the hose off then use timing light and set to what factory says , usually between 4-8 degrees btdc. 1-3-5-7 piston numbers front to back drivers side ///// 2-4-6-8 front to back on pass side firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the dist should have #1 pointing at the drivers front corner of engine. start # 1 plug wire there and work clockwise next spot clockwise on dist is #8 plug wire and so on.. good luck

1997 chevy c 10 truck wont start and back firing just put in new distributor It died this morning had to be towed home what is wrong ???


You should begin by static timing it. Mark #1 location at distributor on engine or something you can refer to later. Remove Dist. cap make sure the distributor rotor is rotating when engine cranks, If it does not the timing chain broke. If it rotates:
1. pull #1 plug, place thumb over plug hole and rotate balancer with socket wrench till it blows your finger off hole. This is #1 TDC compression stroke.
2. look at distributor rotor--it should be pointing at #1 location mark you made earlier if it is you have a spark issue.
3. If it is not pointing to #1 you remove Dist. hold down bolt under Dist. and carefully pull the dist. up while rotating rotor.
4. You will need to advance the dist. a few teeth past#1 (rotating Rotor) then re-install dist. if it doesn't line up to #1 keep repeating step 4 till it does. After you get it right you should be good to go. A timing gun will be needed after to clock in the timing after installing the distributor.
Good luck!!!

2001 1500 4.3L did intake job cant get to start right


ok there is no way to physicaly time the engine with a light. you need to bring #1 cylinder to TDC then install dist. mark contact for ign wire #1 on cap outer as accurately as possible. then mark dist. base with same mark. allign rotor with mark and tighten clamp. assemble and fire make sure fireing order is right,cap is stamped on top. the exact way to set is with a scanner, cam(dist.) sensor and crank sensor need to bolth read #1 TDC at 0 degree advance and tighten clamp, computer takes over from there. be as accurate as possible, if done right it will run, if engine light flashes, your too far off try to bump a tick either way and have a tech set for you with a scanner. best of luck!

Set timming


You will need a timing light for Hi energy ignition as well as standard socket set or wrenches. 1. get the engine up to operating temp. 2 shut off engine connect the timing light to the number one[1] spark plug wire at the spark plug end connect battery connectors. 3 start engine and note location of pointer on the mark tab on the timing cover. 4 shut off engine loosen the hold down clamp on the distributor turn the bolt no more than one full turn[snug is better than loose here] then note the position of the dist. cap. Move the dist. to make sure it moves freely replace back to the starting position and remove and plug the vaccum line to the dist. 5 start engine and set timing to the desired spec. 6 shut off engine tighten dist. clamp bolt 7 start engine check timing one more time to see if still there at desired setting. 8 shut off engine dis-connect all tools and light
