Want to remove and replace the distributor in my 1997 gmc


1 Remove the plastic cover from the engine block with a wrench, then let the spark plug wires lead you to the distributor. It's at the back of the engine block.


2 Remove the negative cable from the battery at the side of the engine compartment; carefully pull the spark plug wires off the distributor cap so you don't damage them. Use a screwdriver to take off the coil leads from the distributor and the electrical connector at the bottom of the distributor.


3 Loosen the clamps and take off the distributor cap. Mark the parts to align the rotor position to the distributor housing and the housing to the engine block. This will help replace parts correctly during distributor installation.


4 Unbolt the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench and remove the distributor from the engine.


5 Install the new Sierra distributor, aligning the marks for proper seating in the engine block. When ordering the distributor, give the parts dealer your model, year and engine size. You can order part number A1841639 from Parts Train for a 4.3L engine.


6 Re-install the distributor hold-down bolt. Replace the distributor cap and put the clamps back on. Attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor, put on the spark plug wires and coil leads, and hook up the negative battery cable.

No spark on spark plug and coil gets really hot and the car doesnt want to start mini 1275


The points may be closed up . This would complete the ignition coil circuit heating the coil but as the points would not open there would be no spark. First check that the distributor shaft is rotating and the contact point gap is set corectly when the rubbing block of the points is on the edge of the distributor shaft cam. From memory the gap should be .45 mm or 20 thou . Failing that the coil could have shorted out internally. Make sure if you replace the coil that you get the correct coil for the car.

1993 geo metro timeing is off


Get a strobe timing light, hook the aligator clamps to the battery and the C clamp to the #1 spark plug wire. This makes the lamp flash every time #1 plug fires. Point it at the main pully and you should see it flash and light up a mark on the pully. If you see no mark, stop the engine and look for it. Paint it white with some correction fluid, then try again. You will also need to loosen your distributor, which has two bolts holding it tight. You can tell which bolts as they have elongated holes to allow you to adjust timing. Once you see the white timing marks, (with engine warmed up) rotate the loosened distributor until the mark lines up with the 5 or 6 on the plastic timing belt cover near the pulley. This would put your timing 5 or 6 degrees advanced. I think factory is 5.5, so this should be close.

Installing distributor for 1979 Ford f-150 V-8 302


If the engine is cranked (disturbed) with the distributor removed, it will now be necessary to retime the engine.
  1. Rotate the engine so that No.1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke.
  2. Align the timing marks to the correct ignition timing shown on the underhood decal.
  3. Install the distributor with the rotor in the No.1 firing position and any armature pole aligned with a stator pole.
Make sure that the oil pump intermediate shaft properly engages the distributor shaft. It may be necessary to rotate the engine after the distributor gear is partially engaged in order to engage the oil pump intermediate shaft and fully seat the distributor in the block.
  1. If it was necessary to rotate the engine to align the oil pump, repeat Steps 1, 2 and 3.
  2. Install the holddown bolt finger tight.
  3. Install the distributor cap and wires.
  4. Connect the distributor wring connector to the wiring harness. Tighten the holddown bolt.
  5. Install the air cleaner, if removed.
  6. Check the ignition timing as outlined in Section 2.
  7. When everything is set, tighten the holddown bolt to 25 ft. lbs.

Engine revs to high


You definitly have to check the cable installation/adjustment. Remove the air cleaner and with the engine off, advance the throttle to full open and then let it snap closed. The throttle plate should come completely closed. Also check your linkage to make sure that the progressive linkage is not hanging on the high steps oft the choke linkage. This could also have been affected by the cable installation.

Question, did the problem occur after the cable installation? If so, this is the area of your problem.
