The easy way to find Top Dead Center is to take out # 1 spark plug and put your finger in the hole in the block. Get someone to crank the engine over as slow as you can until you feel air pressure blow by your finger. turn engine by hand until timing marks line up with 0 mark on harmonic dampener. you are now ready to install distibutor . make sure the rotor points to #1 cylinder when fully seated. It is also a good idea to line up the oil pump shaft slot with distibutor grove and it will drop in easier. Good Luck.

I have a Chevy Silverado trailer towing edition with a 454 motor in it, the distributor is not turning when you turn it over what could be the problem


there may be a little roll pin broke that holds the gear on bottom of distributor shaft...costs about 50 cents .....fun to change....you have to retime motor to no. 1 by timing marks then re-install distibutor at no. 1 firing position.....i had a 1984 ford ranger that done that to me on opening day of bow season....it also backfired and luckily i had fire extinguisher ...

Wont start


The symptoms are a little vague to help you well. I know that you have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe. The engine will crank but won't start. There is spark and you have double checked the timing. I don't know what you mean "The coolant pushes out hard". It sounds like you are saying that the head gasket has failed and when you crank the engine over, coolant is pushed out of the radiator. Primarily an engine needs fuel and spark, to run. Would you write back with more details. How is the fuel pressure? Did I interpret the coolant description correctly? If I did then I think we both know that needs to be taken care of first. I hope that helps, please write back with any updates or new questions, good luck.

I changed the ignition coil, the wires, and plugs, still only 2 plugs firing. what is my problem ?


It would help greatly if you wore more spicfic about what kind of vehicle and year also engine you have . But that being said the problem probably lies in the electronic ignition module or the cam shaft pisition sensor or the distibutor shaft or distibutor shaft gear to the cam shaft

I have this code is p1345 i need one solution please.


P1345 is Camshaft To Crankshaft Position Correlation Fault. This code is set for a couple of reasons. Most common is a stretched timing chain. The other is the distibutor drive gear is worn. In some rare instances if the distibutor was removed for any reason and the engine was disturbed at all, the distributor could be put back in 1 tooth off, the engine will run but you will get this code.

Ok I just changed the valve cover gasket and I changed all the spark plugs and wires but it is still misfiring. Why?


Have you taken the distibutor cap off ? if not, take it off and check for spider like tracks from the centre electrode to the other terminals, also check rotor arm for signs of melting, cracks etc.

I cant remember where my leeds go on my distributor cap


how many cylinders? for 4 the firing order is 1342 for example--if you have 6 or 8 lookit up on the net and you will find the firing order and then just count round the distibutor and hook up accordingly--modern cars don't have this issue--no distributor.
