How can I time a distributor without a timing light or wheel on a skid steer?


is this a points distributor
place the timing mark at the desired position before tdc compression stroke ( normally around 10 degrees )
se the points to correct gap
turn on the ignition and move the distributor body against direction of rotation until the points just open ( noise or spark across points
tighten the distributor at this position
replace cap and it will start
alight when used will show the timing to be almost at that setting
if pointless distributor
set the timing mark as described and the set the apex of the exciter at the mark on the small pickup in the distributor
That again will be the timing mark setting
if it is an efi engine
the ecm unit will determine the timing of the engine from the crank position sensor

What degree should the 65 xp falcon 200 super pursuit motor ignition be set at


the degrees advance will be 10 degrees on the crank pulley. Loosen the distributor clamp so that you can turn the distributor . Set the points to the point gap. Place the pulley timing on 10 degrees . Turn the distributor in the direction of rotation until the points are closed . Turn on the ignition and advance ( turn against direction of rotation) the distributor until you hear a click. If you have the coil lead out of the coil when you hear the click you will get a spark from the HT lead. Lock up the distributor clamp at this point and you will be spot on timing. On most engines the recommended advance setting can vary a little so you may be able to advance it just a bit to make it run better . Use a light to check for how far advanced you are. A max of 12 degrees will be allowable.

place the timing mark on the crank pulley at the correct ignition timing mark (10 degrees advanced). Place in the distributor so that the rotor button points to no1 cylinder in the cap. when fitted in properly turn the distributor so that the points are just opening. ( you can get this by turning on the ignition and when you see the points spark or hear a spark click then lock the distributor up at that point . Use a timing light for final set. If it wont start you got it on 180 degrees out then just move the HT wires around 180 degrees. If you have a transistorized ignition then when the point of the cam star is directly opposite the magnet point that is the same as the points.

How to wire a coil on a 1989 chevy 2500 with a 5.7 vortec engine?


No. 1 cylinder. Reinstall the spark plug and wire.3 Install the distributor, making sure the gasket is in place, and with the rotor facing the No. 1 cylinder. With the curvature of the gear on the distributor and camshaft, the rotor will turn about 30 degrees when meshed. Place the distributor shaft in the hole, but hold the distributor high enough so that it does not contact the gear. Point the rotor toward the No. 1 cylinder, then rotate it counterclockwise about 30 degrees and insert the distributor. If the rotor does not point in the right direction yet, lift the distributor and turn the rotor a little farther and insert it again until it points to the No. 1. If the rotor keeps lining up wrong, remove the distributor all the way, and insert the long screwdriver in the hole. Turn the oil pump drive a little, then try the distributor again.4 Install the distributor hold-down clamp and bolt. Loosely tighten the bolt so the distributor can still be turned.5 Rotate the distributor so that the vacuum advance, if there is one, is an equal distance from the firewall and the carburetor. Lay the distributor cap on, and pay attention to a spark plug wire terminal location in relation to the rotor. Once you've found a spark plug terminal that is very close to the rotor end, make a mark on the distributor housing directly below the center of the terminal location. Remove the cap, and rotate the distributor housing so the mark just made is exactly under the rotor end. Move the distributor housing counterclockwise another 5 degrees, and tighten the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench.6 Install the distributor cap, paying attention to which terminal the mark is under and which terminal is closest to the rotor end. Use a screwdriver to tighten the hold-down screws on the cap.7Install the No. 1 spark plug wire in the terminal in front of the rotor end. Install the remainder of the wires in a clockwise direction using the firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

    How do i install a distributor to a nissan pick up


    It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley are used.

    Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0.

    Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.

    Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is on the distributor. Lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the housing just below the No.1 spark plug terminal plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor. On the VG30i, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

    When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

    When the distributor is correctly installed, the breaker points should be in such a position that they are just ready to break contact with each other or a lobe of the reluctor is aligned with the stator contact. This is accomplished by rotating the distributor body after it has been installed in the engine. Once again, line up the marks that you made before the distributor was removed from the engine. On the VG30i, the distributor rotor should be in the 11:25 o'clock position (between 11 and 12 o'clock).
    1. Install the distributor hold-down bolt.
    2. Install the spark plugs.
    3. Install the cap, primary wire, and vacuum line(s).
    4. Install the spark plug leads. Consult the marks made during removal to be sure that the proper lead goes to each plug. Install the high tension wire if it was removed.
    5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

    Distributor vibrated loose ,lost spark ,wont start how do i fix ?The distributor just turns loosely in the engine the bolts that hold it in place vibrated loose


    easy to sort out ,turn engine around so timing mark on front pulley lines up ,then take the cap off distributor and make sure the rotor arm points at no1 lead on the distributor cap ,tighten distributor ,if it doesnt start then slacken it off again and turn engine around one turn till the marks line up again and repeat the rotor at no1 lead and start engine ,then move distributor around a bit till revs increase then back it back a bit and it will be right ,if engine pinks of gives off a knocking sound on acceleration then back it off a fraction till the noise stops then it will be perfect ,or as perfect as you will get it without a timing light ,

    If the distrubutor is definatley installed correctly, as you have some one crank the engine turn the distributor sightly counert clock-wise and clock-wise until the engine fires up. Then set the timing with a light. Double check the wires are in the correct position on the dist in relation to spark plug/cylinder places.

    On a 94 merc topaz, removed the distributor, did'nt mark it, turned over the engine now i cant set it properly to start the car. i have no timing light only trying to set it by removing #1 spark plug...


    hi no your not doing it correctly, what is happening when you put the distributer at #1 it will rotate as you put it back in wich is knocking it off by about 10 to15 degrees, the best wat to do it, is psoition the rotor in the distributor to #1..then as you put it back in, make sure you do not have the cap on, you will see it move round to either left or right, past the #1 possition, ok, what you want to do is mark how far it is turning, then add that plus the same to the other side, then mark that, remove distributor and then place the rotor arm on that mark, place the distributor back in without the cap on, then hopfully if all is ok, it will rotate to #1 or approx, you can put the cap back on and try it, if it fails to start, just move the distributor as the engine is being turned, and it will eventually fire.phew...hope that helps

    1989 honda crx timing issues


    This is the tricky part... as I mentioned in my solution, When you install the distributor, the shaft will turn because of the gears. You are going to have to pull the distributor just enough so that the gears aren't meshing together and turn the shaft.take notice of which way the shaft turns when you remove the distributor. Once the gears aren't meshing, turn the shaft to the #1 position and go a little past the #1 position in the opposite way that the shaft turned.install the distributor and see where the rotor sits then.if it is still not in the right place, pull it again and go one gear tooth at a time until the rotor lines up with the #1 position. Hope this helps. If you still need more info or clarification, don't hesitate to ask.
