Hello;
The timing should be set at 6 BTDC. Be sure to set the dwell first, then the timing. Hope this helps.

Just pop the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine while you watch the rotor.

How I can determine which hole in the distributor is assigned to the #1 plug wire.
Pull the number one plug. Turn the engine over slowly (with a wrench) while holding your finger over the plug hole. When the air builds (a lot of) pressure you are coming up to the number one spot on the distributor. (the rotor will point to the location of the #1 hole in the distributor.)

Quick methods to disable the engine I have seen people do on the classics:
Close the points by loosening the set screw
Pull the rotor cap
Connect a wire from the coil to ground. (effectively closes the points. Can damage the coil if key is left on.)
Pull the main ignition wire
And there are some tricks at the starter solonoid involving the ballast resistor bypass that is used to provide a hotter spark while cranking. (Two little wires at the starter solonoid - one is crank the other is the ballast bypass.)

Might give those a look-see. Best of luck (rememeber rated this help).

SOURCE: where is fuel filter located

The fuel filter is located inside the inlet fitting to the carburetor(s) It is very small, about the diameter of a large magic marker and about 3/4" long, you will need the special fuel line fitting wrenches to remove the fuel line and then the barrel adapter that is screwed into the carb inlet/bowl (1"), if you don't use them you can destroy the fittings. Below is a picture.

Can you tell me the oil capacity of the 5 cylinder inline engine.


I presume you have the 300D diesel. If this is the case, you will need 6 quarts for non-turbo, and 8 quarts for the turbo 300DT. Both include a filter change.

Engine swap 5.0 vortec to 350 non computer controled


The computer runs the Transmission from the signals the throttle position sensor, crank shaft sensor, and cam shaft sensor. Your going to have to replace the transmission with an older transmission like the turbo 350 or turbo 400. When it's time to get the car e-tested, that's when your going to run in to problems, due to the year your Chevy is. If your Chevy was a 1985 then you could go with the carb system but with being the newer OBD11 system, your going to have an off road only vehicle with that swap. Why would you want to replace the engine with the 350 carb set up??? There are things you can do to tweak the one in your Chevy free of charge.

What is the size of the engine non turbo 4 cylinder


There's several variants of the engine.

There's a 2.2L Inline 4 which came in turbo and non-turbo
There's a 2.5L Inline 4 which came in turbo and non-turbo
There's also a 3.0L V6 as well

But since you asked for the 4 Cylinder, it will either be 2.2L or 2.5L non turbo

Timing Dpecs for Toyota Supra 87 6 cylinder


1987 non-turbo: 10 deg Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) @700 rpm
1987 Turbo: 10 deg BTDC @650 rpm.

To set the timing, you will need to connect a jumper wire between terminals E1 and TE1 on the diagnostic terminal. This diagnostic terminal is located just aft of the engine compartment fuse box. It is a black plastic box marked "diagnostic" on the cover, which flips open to reveal the terminals inside. There is a diagram on the inside of the cover which explains the terminal positions. On the Turbo model, you need to remove the forward section of the engine cover to gain access to the number one spark plug wire.

I need the piston firing order for a VG30E or a VG30ode


My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.

For the 3.0L:
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
5--------6
3--------4
1--------2
(front of engine)
Distributor:
....(back)
.6......5......4
.|.......|........|
V......V......V
|..................|
|..................|
^.......^.......^
.|........|........|
1.......2.......3
....(front)

2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.

Click on the following Link for the Timing Belt/Chain Diagrams.

Again, my sincerest apologies:
