I have a 1988 GMC 1500 305 the problem is when I drive for 20 min or more and shut it off I cant start it for 30 min it has to cool down before the fuel pump will kick back on so I am lost can anybody

When that happens try flammable brake cleaner in the throttle body.If it fires know it was not getting fuel.If it doesn't it is an ignition problem...Cuts.your choices in half.

I need the firing order on the left side for disibutor for a 1986 gmc 305


Keep in mind, the spark plug wires can be placed in any position (depending on the spark plug wire length) in relation to where the number 1 spark plug terminal is located. In other words, once you assign a port on the cap to number 1 cylinder the rest will follow the 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 firing order.

Wont start

simpler that exposing the throttle body just depress the accelerator 3/4 and try to start.

If like before, the vehicle starts... watch the rear view mirror for black smoke

both indicates a leaking injector(s)
