Question about 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser
Remove the distributor and check the gear at the bottom for missing teeth. Check for excessive play in the distributor shaft. If it checks out, Re-install the distributor and place a socket at the crank bolt. With the dist. cap off, rotate the engine backwards. While watching the rotor, see how far you have to rotate the engine before the rotor moves. If it seems like a long way, replace you timing set. You may have a severely stretched timing chain.
