The timing should be set at 6 degrees before top dead center only for California emission equipped vehicles, and unless the engine code was "CCC" (check the emission label if the vehicle still has one) or had federal emissions then the ignition timing should be set at 8 degrees before top dead center. and 10 degrees before top dead center for high altitude vehicles.

The #1 cylinder is located at the front spark plug on the driver side, and here is a firing order diagram top help assist you.

I am having problemsseting the distributor on a 1996 chevy 305. this is a new motor . do i set the pointer at # 6 or # 1


The distributor rotor must point to the post on the cap of the cylinder that is firing. In your case, if #6 is at TDC of the compression stroke, than the pointer must point to the distributor cap post of the #6 cylinder wire. But I must tell you that if you have TDC on #1, and rotate the crankshaft 360 degrees, #1 will be at TDC again...

I need the spark plug wiring diagram for a 1994 caprice classic 305


firing order of a small block chevy engine is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, clockwise-#1 on the front driver side (1,3,5,7 on driver sied, 2,4,6,8 on passenger side)-#1 should be about the 7 o'clock position, but to be certain, rotate the crank (loclkwise) until the 0 degree mark on the balancer lines up with the scale-look at the installed rotor-it is either pointed at the 7 o'clock position or the o'clock position-with the plug in #1 removed, rotate it again to see if the cylinder pushes air (compression)-that is where #1 plug wire belongs. just plug them in in order (18436572)-you will still have to time it to start, they usually need to be set a few degrees before top dead center.

Sorry about my last question regarding "what vehicle" I got caught up with another question.
Anyways the long ones are torqued to 65Ft Lbs and short ones @ 60.
use an x pattern starting in the midle and work your way out to the ends equally.
Good luck on that classic
