First remove number 1 spark plug, this is the front first plug on the driver side.put your finger over the hole and have someone bump it over until you get compression blowing your finger off the hole tell them to stop. then look on your harmonic balancer and line up the notch on balancer to the wide gap on the pointer. when this is lined up your then on number one compression stroke.

Diagram for 1993 chev 350 thruttle body for spark plugs


Firing order is clock wise rotation. You can see firing order in picture. You can see how cylinders are numbered. I did show number one terminal on distributor cap, according to my database. I don't like to do that because I've seen many pictures that were wrong. If you put number one piston on tdc of compression stroke, which ever spark plug tower the rotor is leading into is number one, then follow firing order around cap in direction of rotation. Just my opinion.
I looked at 93 chevy pickup, 350 engine.

How do I find tdc on 350 v8 small block if the balancer has no marks


Lizzy, with all spark plugs removed so you are able to turn engine over by hand with the assistance of a wrench to fit crank pulley nut.
you or an assistant have to hold thumb/finger over #1 cylinder spark plug hole, rotate engine clockwise till you feel compression trying to blow thumb from hole or leak. Stop rotating engine when pressure is felt ( #1 cylinder compression stroke), now you have to place a probe of sorts(1/4" wooden dowel, 10" long) in same plug hole. Now turn engine till probe is pushed up as far as it can go, stop rotating engine here, before it starts lowering piston again (end of #1 compression stroke) TDC, top dead center. If you had a dial indicator you could get more accurate, but this is basically TDC.

Want to put 1994 chev 305 engine/tranny in 1982 olds cutlass


First off you have to determine if the original engine in the car is an olds engine or chevy or the buick V6, - if it has the Olds307 the starter will be on the drivers side do not replace it with a Chevy motor the trans wont bolt up and if you try to transplant the chevy trans and engine you are going to run into crossmember problems driveshaft issues and alot of grief - find an Olds Rocket 350 - the older the better - it will save time and money and the Olds 350's put out a hell of alot more horses than a chevy like almost 100 more STOCK!!, a and will take a beating, try to find one pre 1975 but mor common are the 1977 (the last year) - or take the 307 to a macine shop and have it made into a rocket 350 also a cheap route.
