Reset timing on chain for 85 olds cutlass


I used to have one of these...there are 2 top dead centre positions you have to watch for. Top Dead Centre "Compression" and Top Dead Centre "Exhaust".

With the distributor cap on, you will know where number 1 is on the distributer, remove the distributor cap and then turn the motor using the crank...keep turning until you see the rotor pointing to number 1. If the number 1 piston is at TDC then you are good to go with it being at TDC Compression- rotor at 1.
If your rotor is at number 1 but your number 1 piston is down then you need to remove the distributor from the rotor 180 degrees then slide the distributor back into the block carefully...remembering to be careful because your oil pump is run by a shaft which snaps onto the bottom of the distributor.

How do you set the timeing on a 91 ltd crown victoria?


on all cars bring piston to top dead center on the #1 piston... install distributor with rotor cap pointing 2 the number one position on the cap , install wires turn car on and take a timing light (must have tool) and use as per direction, set timing by turning the distributor till it reaches the right number or tab see front of motor crank pulley and tab on block. if you have a crank trigger the timing will be factory set and if u install new distributor , it will set automatically. if this is to confusing u need to see a mechanic .sorry

IF YOU HAVE NEW TIMING CHAIN INSTALLED TIMING MARKS 12 OCLOCK POSITION ON CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET AND CAMSHAFT SPROCKET. AND THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP ROTOR POINTING TOWARD 1 FIRING POSITION.STANDING FRONT OR CAR LOOKING AT THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP 1 FIRING POSITION ON CAP SHOULD BETWEEN THE 5 OCLOCK AND 6 OCLOCK POSITION.DO YOU HAVE 350 OLDS ENGINE OR 350 CHEVY ENGINE THERE WILL BE A DIFFERENCE BECAUSE OLDSMOBILE 350 ENGINE 1 FIRING POSITION ON DISTRIBUTOR CAP WOULD BE AT 12 OCLOCK POSITION.ONCE YOU GET ENGINE PISTON AND VALVE TIMING RIGHT YOU HAVE TO USE TIMING LIGHT AND TACHOMETER TO ADJUST THE IGNITION TIMING.

Firing order on a 305 on the cap. Got the wires all messed up...


This method is good for the firing order on all chevy small block v8 engines from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches. This would include 265, 283, 305, 327, 350, 400 cu. in. chevy small block v8 engines.

Let's cover some safety concerns first. If you try to troubleshoot a mixed up firing order with the engine running, you could be in for a serious shock,.. literally. You can do it, with certain precautions, but you really don't need to check the firing order with the engine running. You definitely don't want to try checking the firing order if you are wearing any kind of pacemaker or sensitive electromechanical prosthesis. The voltage coming out of the ignition coil is in the thousands. Common sense dictates that you wouldn't stick a knife in an electrical outlet, so you wouldn't want to take chances with being shocked by the electrical discharge from your classic chevy's ignition coil either. See the diagram:


5d6424a.png

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.

On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.

Additional details HERE.

Hope helps (remmeber rated this).

Line up timing marks on a 1980 chevy chevette, I turned the crank accidently and don't no how many teeth.


To be perfectly sure where the number 1 cylinder fire is at this point remove the valve cover, remove the #1 spark plug, remove the distributor cap, clean the crank to identify clearly the crankshaft marking on the crankshaft harmonic balancer wheel.
First step: Slowly turn the crank by hand until the line on the crank lines up to the zero timing mark...if you are on #1 the rotor in the distributor should be facing the #1 segmant in the distrbutor caps firing sequence, to verify further both intake and exhaust valve rocker arms should be in the valve closed positions in the #1 cylinder, the piston should be all the way to the top opf dead center(carefully insert a long skinny screw driver into the #1 spark plug hole to feel the pistons top travel while being sure the valves are both closed as explained above).
With all that checking out you are now exactly on top dead center in the #1 firing order sequence of your valve timing.
