what will happen , you will be in all sorts of bother
try this , remove the spark plugs then bring number 1 piston up on compression until the timing marks read tdc
remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor button is pointing to no 1 plug lead
directly under the center of the rotor button line , using a small triangular file and file a small nick in the edge of the distributor body if there is not already a mark there
remove all wires to the distributor . undo the single nut that holds the distributor clam to the block and lift the distributor out
note which way the rotor button turns as you will have to position it before the mark when reinstalling so that the rotor button ends back up at your mark on the body
points to remember--- no 1 piton has to be at tdc compression stroke and the rotor button has to be at your mark or existing mark to get it all right on assembly

When i bolt on the new distributor on a 1995 caprice lt1 4.3 is there away it has to be done like set to number like you do with the old style everybody keeps telling me no but it just doesnt make sense to...

You would put the distributor back in so that the rotor points to the same terminal on the cap the old distributor was pointing to.
If the shaft of the distributor has a notch, you can only put it in two ways with the rotor pointing to two terminals.
If you did not set the crankshaft to TDC before you removed the old dist, you have a 50 percent chance of being in the right position.
The notch on the bottom of the dist keeps you from picking any position other than the right one and the one 180 degrees off.

How to change brake rotors on a 2000 Chev Astro

Unfortunately the rotors on the astro have an integrated hub, so you have to pull the whole thing, the just is just like changing wheel bearings.

Remove the wheel, remove the caliper, remove the dust cap, cotter pin and then remove the axel nut. Be sure to install new grease seals.

This is a good time to replace the wheel bearings, if you don't you should knock the old raced out of the old rotors and install in the new rotors with your old bearings.

Hope this help.

How do I time the engine? replaced the rotor button with major difficulty removing old one. Turned the rotor button several time, does this put it out of time?

By changing the rotor button, this would not cause the timing to be off. As long as you don't remove the distributor a and turn the engine over. If your car is running rough it could be the wires were put on wrong, or a plug is fouled, You could have a bad plug wire. It's many options that could be the problem.

We are trying to replace the rotors and can not get the old one off any suggestions

After removing caliper and caliper mounting bracket, on the rotor close to the wheel studs there will be one or two small screws remove and slide rotor off, some time you will need to knock them out with a hammer.

Replacing ignition distributor on 99 mecury villager and have found top dead on cilander #1 where does the rotor point

Well before you took the old distributor off take notice of rotor button location.If you already removed the old distributor locate number one cylinder and point rotor button to that cylinder. it might have to be done a couple of times to get it just right.

T would like to know the steps to remove the front rotors.

You can try a couple of things. First the most common is try spraying it with something like WD40 or get a breaker bar which will give you more power to turn it and will add alot more tension so the bolt will break loose. Could be that the heat seized it there but try these steps.

Chnaging rear brake rotors

they often rust in place, try hittig them with a hammer around the bolt holes to free them.  if they are loose but still don't come off the emergency brake will need adjustment inside the vehicle.
