Timing mark's on cam and crank should meet, if you did not put distributor out, just set timing gear's as shown, it you did pull it out, stab distributor 180 off, hope this was very helpful.

My 1984 302 has a timing issue I have change the oil pump and reinstalled mother and now my timing is off this


The distributor drive gear has angled teeth, so it turns as you slide it into place. Turn the engine over until you are on TDC for number one. Look at your distributor cap and see where the number one wire terminal is. Pull the cap and make sure that the rotor is pointed to it.

Where is the rotory button suppose to be pointing when the number 1 piston is up for a 1980 chevy luv


When #1 piston is up the rotor can be pointing to 2 different places. For every 1 turn on the crankshaft the camshaft turns 2 times. To be sure that the rotor is in the right position to fire #1 spark plug you need to remove the valve cover and watch the valves as you turn the engine. To be correctly positioned the intake valves have to be open and stasrting to close as you turn the crank to align the timing marks (TDC). As you pass TDC the intake valves are closed and the exhaust valves start to open. Back up so the timing marks line up and this is where the rotor is going to fire #1. If this is not what you are seeing, then simply rotate the engine 1 complete turn and you should see it happen then.

Unless you have changed the timing chain or removed the distributor this shouldn't be necessary.Perhaps if you suspect the truck has "jumped her time" then this could help to confirm. If you are doing routine maintenance, plugs, wires, cap and rotor then you don't need to be concerned that the timing marks line up but not the rotor button. Hope this helps.

Timeing


Doesn't matter what engine it is as long as it has valves and uses petrol (not diesel), the camshaft lobes at cylinder #1 should always face upwards. This positions the valves at it's closed setting (combustion), this is known as Top Dead Center or TDC. With this in position, all your timing markers should align on their marks (cam pulley, crankshaft pulley or flywheel ring gear). Do not confuse yourself with other cylinders being this and that, as long as number 1 cylinder is at TDC or 0* you have set your timing correctly.

Pls. give this a rating, thank you.

My cam shaft timming gear and my crank shaft timming gear dots line up and my harmonick balancer timming mark is on 0 which way should my rooter button face towards number 1 or towards rear of engine


The rotor should be pointing close to number 1, but keep in mind that the spark is actually supposed to happen before the piston gets to tdc so the rotor will be a little bit past the number 1 terminal when the crankshaft indicates that you're at tdc.

My 89 chevy is making a knocking sound i just replaced lifters,push rods rocker arms timing chain and gears cam and valve springs and umbrella seals. i have no clue what it could be except mabe the timing


Did you check the knock sensor located on the passenger side of the block, behind the starter, The sensor can be bad sending a signal to the Computer causing the computer to readjust the spark advanced timing causing Knocking and pinging....... or it could be as simple as bad gas. If you changed the timing chain, the gears should both be set with the the timing marks at 12 oclock for the 89 chevy K1500 5.7 350 V8 TBI OHV 16V if you set the timing at 12 oclock on the cam and 6 oclock for the valve and Distr. the number 6 is firing as number 1 you can recheck by bringing the No. 1 piston back up to TDC and check to see if your Distr. is pointing to the No. 1 Plug Hope this helps

Timing on a 350 chey engine


take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.
