SOURCE: need wireing diagram to change 72 nova over to hei distributor

Hey , just take the positive wire from the coil you are removing and feed it to the + terminal on the HEI dist. cap.the other terminal under there is for your tachometer. If you are mounting a master kill switch in the bumper for drag racing- attatch the kill wire to the tach terminal also.
Thats it you just plug the three wire pigtail from the dist. base(pickup) to the cap and you are off.
Remember firing order is 18436572 in a clockwise direction. to find #1 remove #1 plug and have someone"bump" the engine over while holding your finger over the hole-carefull. then line up the slotted mark on the crank pulley with the big notch on the timing indicator. Good luck

SOURCE: What is the distributor timing mark for 89 chevy

Is the vacuum hose removed from the dist when the timing is being checked?
Are you connected to the first plug wire (closest to the rad) on the drivers side?
If this is being done.....remove the cap and rotor and check the springs on the mechanical advance,the advance should be tight to the shaft and springs tight.
I would set the base timing on this set up .....at idle speed...... at between 5 and 10 before TDC.

Remember......timing marks on modified engines are not always accurate. Parts from this year and that year put together.

SOURCE: wiring an hei distributor

You shouldn't need a spark box because thee coil is located in the dist. cap. You need to run a 12v switched power source to the side of the dist. cap that is marked dist. if it isn't maked it is the term. that is on the front right of the conector pad. the one on the left is for hooking up a tach.

1996 chevy silverado v8 4.3 won't crank. Replaced


Check the voltage coming from the battery and check it again at the coil.I suspect you are not getting the proper voltage going through. Clean all the terminal ends to bare shiny metal and make sure all the connections are tight. If I remember correct your truck still has the HEI setup with the coil in the top of the distributor cap. If all the voltages are good, 12+ volts you should replace the coil. Hope this helps.

Wire position for 75 Chevy 350 HEI on the


Order is 18436572. Put the timing mark on the crank at 0 and the rotor should be pointing either to the firewall or the front of the engine. If at the wall, turn the crank one more time and it is now pointing at the #1 wire position on the distributor.
left side cylinders are 1357 right, 2468 wire order is in the direction the rotor turns when cranking.

Chevy caprice doesn't start. Turns over but, no start.


Check spark. Is this one of those with the HEI coil on top of distributor? Check the ignition module in the distributor under the cap and rotor.

I have a 1998 chevy silverado when trying to start it it acts like its out of gas and just keeps cranking and will not start. i tryed spraying starting fluid it carb thinking it might be fule pump but...


Check to see if it has spark. It may be having a problem with the distributor. If you have put fuel to it to no avail, then you probably dont have spark. Could be the cap / rotor, the coil, the pickup in the distributor, or power going to the coil or distributor. Check for spark and if you dont have any, make sure you have power to the coil / distributor. If you do then try a new coil cap and rotor. Hardest part would be the pickup in the distributor if thats bad.
Heres a link to an article on the types of distributors and how to rebuild them.

Chevy 350 no spark I have changed the coil, cap, and rotor. Still no spark. I also changed the plugs and wires about 3 months ago


Check the distributor module (ICM), it may have gone bad and needs to be replaced. It's around $40.00 and it's under the rotor in the distributor assembly. Check the red lead wire to the HEI for voltage, there should be 12 volts. It common for the ICM to fail on the HEI system and if you go to Auto Zone, they can give you the step by step instructions to replace the ICM. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
