Well your ? is for a 1985???? there were no points in 1985.

You may have some of the plug wires in the wrong firing order on the cap.

Can i put a 1981 Corvette 350 engine in a 1988 IROC with 305 tune port , and still use the tune port?


Yes, you will need to transfer all peripheral sensors and the intake and injection from the Camaro engine to the Corvette engine, But the beauty of a small block chevy is that most everything interchanges. One thing to make sure you get correct is the flywheel. Count the teeth and make sure they match. You will need the correct balanced flywheel and balancer for the Corvette engine, and double check the length and rotation of the waterpump.

98 chevy truck 350 engine 93K miles when starting sometimes the engine will backfire..could be cold or hot engine..but after it runs for a couple of minutes will run fine..


A backfire usually indicates a timing issue. I recommend a minor tune up, which will include new plugs and wires, as well as checking/setting the distributor timing. An oil change is also recommended after the issue is corrected, as offset timing can cause fuel to remain in cylinder, which then bleeds past the piston rings and ends up in the crankcase with the engine oil.

Yes i have a 96 chevy 2500 with a 350 and i cant fegure out what is causeing an engine miss i done repalced plugs wires roter and crank sensor it only mises when driving engins sounds solid at idle


What you are saying is the engine runs rough under load.
If the fuel system is in good condition, the ignition system would be my first target.
You mentioned plugs wires and rotor. Did you replace the cap ?
What about the coil ? The pickup in the bottom of the distributor ?
Any of these components could cause a miss-fire.
Even a faulty O2 sensor could cause a lean fuel mixture.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ?

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.

I have a 1962 chevy pick-up wiyh 235 engine. has always run good.,then a couple years ago my vscuum advance quit working.It still ran good enough for general work around my house. I tuned it up last week...


sounds like the spark plugs are'nt gapped properly, you say you tuned it up, i assume you mean plugs and wires were replaced, if this started after the tune up my guess is the plug gap or you misplaced a plug wire

I need help finding out what engine is in my truck. i have an 86 chevy blazer k5 with the 350 5.7 liter so it says . but the guy i bought it from said it was replaced with a crate motor. my vacuum hoses...


On the chevy small block v8 the numbers will be on the left side of the engine look for a small step right at the head / block mating area. The numbers will be in the form of a ser# get that number and call a good chevy dealer and they can tell what engine you got. But any small block chevy crate engine will be a 350 or a 305. they will act the same as far as tune up and any vacuum hoses to the carb or trans. They interchange of a sort.

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough


If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?

Tune up


At 60,000 you should have all the major things done if you haven't already:
oil change(every 3000)
air filter change(every 15,000)
coolant flush(every 30,000)
spark plugs and wires(every 30,000)
transmission fluid & filter change(every 30,000)
brakes (as needed)
PCV valve (every 20,000)

You can wait until about 75000 miles to do your timing belt.

Hope this helps
