If you want to tune the timing for performance, use a degree timing light. Find the straight mark on the harmonic balancer. On the timing cove is a tab or it may have a aftermarket timing mark bolted to the timing cover. With the vacume advance unpluged from the distributor and the vacume line plugged (to prevent a lean condition).

Use the trottle and rev engine to 1500 rpms. Set the timing light to 32 degrees and adjust distributor until the marks on the harmonic balancer and the zere mark on the tab align. Tighten distrubutor clamp and recheck one more time.

According to my book there were 2 327's for that year. The 250 HP motor is set at 4 degrees BTDC and the 300HP version is set at 8 degrees BTDC. It doesn't tell me how to sort the 2 motors out. Hope this helps.

What engine did my 64 chevy come with


If that's a full size psgr car it could have a 230 6 cyl, 283 2bbl carb, 327 250 or 300 hp, 409 340, 400 or 425 hp. The 400 and 425 409's were manual trans only all others could be either manual or powerglide. The 409's in 64 had K66 transistor ignition as an option. First year for K66 in Chevrolet line, Pontiac had it in 1963. The 327 first showed in 1962 in both cars and corvettes.

I have a 1963 Chevy stepside with a 327 engin, after reaching running temperature, it wont start


(1)Remove the air cleaner, looking down the primary throttle bore (front) move the throttle at the carburetor. Did you see fuel spray? if so its not a fuel related issue.
(2)Next, check your battery cables. High resistance in a cable (corrosion) will get worse with heat. Heat increases resistance. You may want to replace them depending how old they are. You need to check for condition and security of how they are connected ( good tight, clean connections). Sometimes its difficult to spot corrosion with the plastic insulation on top of the cable. Corrosion is usually at the ends where the bare wire is exposed.
(3) May have a bad starter. My old Ford would crank slow when hot. Found bad cables, but eventually had to replace starter too. Works great now.

The torque spec on the valve cover bolts is 3 ft pounds or 36 inch pounds.
This spec is good for all Chevy small blocks.
