What year is this engine? and ci

From this chart - I think you may be misreading the number - 3970010 is possibly the actual number: Which makes the engine pretty old 68-72 350 V8 - 4 bolt main. I included past this number so that you can see that the number you posted doesn't actually exist. And thus my conclusion that the 9 is most likely a 0. Hope this helps. 3970010 350 69 Corvette late 69,4 bolt main 3970010 302 69 Camaro Z/28,Late 69, 4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Truck 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro,Nova,MonteCarlo 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 70 Corvette 300,350,370 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 71 Corvette 270,330 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 72 Corvette 200,255 HP 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-77 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro, Nova,MonteCarlo 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-79 Truck 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 72 Corvette late &undefined;72,200 HP,255HP 4 bolt main 3970020 307 68-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova 3970020 307 69-73 Truck 3970024 307 69-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck 3992386 327 68-69 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck Large Jounal

R&r 5.7 distripter in 1996 camaro

Replacing the Optispark Distributor is a real pain in this year and the LT1 engine.
Here are the steps
Remove accessory drive belt
Remove air intake hose to engine
Remove Radiator fans (unplug wiring harness first)
Drain the cooling system
Remove water pump (unplug water temp sensor first, tie hoses back out the way)
Remove Crankshaft balancer (you can get around the hub).
Remove Optispark cap and the rotor, the remove the bolts that hold the distributor to the block

Reverse to assemble.

I Have a LT1 motor in my car. There are a"old" and

The old style fits into the timing cover that has the small hole for the actual distributor shaft. The old style also has no vacuum lines connected to it, or no provisions for vacuum lines to be connected to it.

The newer style has one vacuum line that runs from the elbow that connects the throttle body to the MAF, and another vacuum line that goes to the drivers side of the intake manifold. The timing cover has a hole about 2 inches in diameter for the newer Opti, the old version has a hole about 3/8" in diameter. If the distributor is installed look for the vacuum lines on the opti. The one that goes from the intake elbow attaches to the drivers side front in about the 2, O clock position. The one that attaches to the intake manifold attaches to the drivers side too, at about the 5, O clock position.

Changing pickup coil

You have to remove the distributor from the engine then remove the distributor shaft from the distibutor housing, then you can remove & replace the pickup coil. Make sure you marke the exact location of the distributor body in relation to the intake manifold and note exactly where the rotor is pointing in relation to the distributor cap. I always set the timing marks on the front pulley at zero and make sure that the rotor is pointing at the #1 plug wire terminal on the cap before removing any distributor as it makes getting it in time easier if you lose your marks. You should reset the ignition timing when you have it all back together again as you'll most likely be off a few degrees. Some of these distributors had problems with the magnets in the distibutor shaft that would mimic a failing pickup coil and they were prone to drive gear wear. If you suspect any of those problems it's often easier to replace the entire distibutor with a reman unit.

I just put a new distibutor in my GF 1998 civic It was throwing a 1362 code new distibutor solved that engine light is out, but now the car stumbles on acceleration of idle. It did not do this with the old...

the best thing is take that distributor out, exchange for other new one. make sure the new distributor is a right year for your car and model . good luck

My car timing i s out of set

ok,bring your #1 cylinder up to where both intake and exhaust valves are closed and your harmonic balancer timing marks are on 0 degrees,drop your distributor in where the rotor is pointing to #1 cylinder leave a little loose where you can turn it while running,mark where the rotor is pointing on the intake so when you put the cap on you will know where to put #1 plug wire,of course hook up all wires,now just behind the distributor on the firewall there is a brown single wire,unplug that wire while you use a timing light to set it at 8 degrees(while its running)once you set it to where it needs to be then tighten the distributor and plug that wire back in,its for the computer for electronic advancements.if the engine pops or bangs when you try to start it,then the timing is 180 degrees off,then all you have to do is lift the distibutor out and turn it exactly 180 degrees...NOW im only going through all of this not because i dont think you know what you are doing,its because i dont want to miss anything on the timing order to avoid complications for you.
