I'm replacing the timming chain on my 1996 seria pick up how can i bring it up on tim?

If you mean how do you install the distributor, you set the timing marks on the crank pulley and point the rotor to the number one cylinder plug wire.
You'll either be close or 180 degrees off.

99 gmc Safari awd 4.3L when it rains engine cranks wont start no codes found backfired so bad it blew the muffler apart at the seams. has new distributer, upper manifold and new upgraded multiport fuel...

This may be due to a bad coil wire shorting out GM had many problems with these ..There was even a recall for this a long time ago.. The wire would short out on the metal foil on the doghouse and the aluminum a/c line if there was any damage or corrosion to the terminals...A new distributor ...I had an apprentice put one in one time and he thought the rotor was to point to #1 and forgot the dist cap was like a printed circut board and the rotor was no wheres near #1 good luck

Hi Tim,
Please check that there is no leakage in your water cooling system. If there is leakage, it causes the engine to heat up and burnup the gasket. You need to make sure your thermostat is also reset properly depending on the weather condition in Maine.

Out of Time

to reset the timeing tou will have to have the vehicle running. you will need to get a timming light. loosen your distributer so you can turn it but DO NOT turn it until your are ready. on the timming light you will have a camp running on one wire and a gun with a light in it. hook the clamp up to your number one spark plug wire. On your vehicle under the hood it should say on a sticker what the timing should be set at EX:
have someone start the car and point the timming light towards the crank. there should be some marking on it that you will be able to see with the timming light. there should be a needle pointing at one of the numbers. after you find what number your vehicle is supposed to be set turn the distributor one way or the other until the needle points to the setting you need. after that hold the distributor in place and tighten it back up. than see what you have from there.
