Fire is one thing, timing is another. Is the a throttle body type engine? There should be a tan wire with a black stripe with a plastic connector (going from memory) to disconnect. it may be on the firewall near the distributor) But you only do that to set timing. it wont keep it from running or firing.

Hi there is a tan/black wire it should be just above the carpet on the passenger side of the truck. you will need to disconnect this and set the timing then reconnect it and clear the timing code. If this motor will not fire you may want to check and make sure the distributor is set in and timed right. the rotor on these motors dont point at the number one spot on the cap.

the same.

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.

How to set timing on a 1997 v6 4.3l gmc vortec engine need to know specs. I am installing a new motor in the truck.


On the drives side long the fire wall on the harness, will be one wire from all the other ones, it could be brown or tan, disconnect the that wire, start engine and set timing, turn engine off reconnect wire and check timing again, should be advance now, also some times that will cause an engine light to come on, just disconnect battery for 15 sec. and computer is reset.

What should the timing be at on a 1984 buick 231 3.8 engine, recently rebuilt


Assuming the engine was re-assembled correctly with the all timing marks properly aligned, and the number 1 piston at top dead center in relation to the timing marks on the crankshaft, camshaft, and counterbalncing shaft, the computer sets the timing.
These are great engines, but they can be fun to work on, if you know what I mean.

I just put in a rebuilt 1993 s10 motor and cant find the wire to set the timing. been behind glove box and under dash but no wires worked. what else can i do?


To set the timing you will have to find a black connector that is running beside the wiring harness next to or near the distributor. It is a single wire connector and must be disconnected in order to set the timing properly. Hope this helps.
