SOURCE: timing on a 350 chey engine

take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.

The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.
The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction. The engine must be on the compression stroke on the #1 cylinder. Line up the timing marks. Remove the cap and the rotor should be pointing to approximately the 5 o'clock position.

Good Luck

How to replace gmc1990 pickup coil


I assume this is the HEI coil. If not let me know and I can help further.
Instructions
    • 1 Put your safety first. Engage your emergency or parking brake. Also, disconnect the negative battery cable from the Chevy Corvette's battery.
    • 2 Make the ignition system visible. On older models, you may need to remove the plenum extension for the intake manifold using a screwdriver or wrench. For newer models, remove the cover for the fuel rail.
    • 3 Look for additional parts that you need to remove. For HEI systems, you need to access the distributor through the cap. Other systems use an ignition coil harness connector.
    • 4 Disconnect the secondary wires, or spark plug wires, from the ignition coil. Tag each wire with masking tape, so you know which terminal to reconnect the wire to. If you connect the wrong wires to the terminals, your Chevy Corvette won't start.
    • 5 Detach the ignition coil mounting bolts and remove the ignition coil. The amount and type of bolts vary depending on the part number for the Corvette ignition coil. You may also need to remove the ignition coil arc seal.
    • 6 Clean the distributor cap with a soft cloth. Now is a good time to replace the seal, if needed. Insert your new ignition coil and secure it in place. As you reassemble, use a Torque wrench to tighten the mounting bolts or screws to 13 inch pounds (1.5 Nm) of torque.
    • 7 Reassemble the rest of the parts and reconnect your battery. Start the Chevy Corvette to ensure the repair worked.

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.

HEI distributor and burning coils,it in you connection first make sure you install primary and secondary prorperly as it comes out of the cap , and inside the cap wire from modules dont make contact if you are burning its from primary circuit, this is the (B+) or (battery most likely), your secondary is your tach and that need to switch from postitive to negative for it to create spark obvously if tach was grounded or applied power you wont start,but there are times the condensor in the distributor does stays fixed and shorts out the coil (replace that condensor its for suppression) when the condensor is replaced run a fused direct wire at B+ (from ignition) run the vehicle and monitor the tach wire and check to see if that get hot

Wiring for a small block 350


need to know if its a HEI cap and rotor or not. HEI caps have the coil built into them , an all in one ignition as compared to a external cylindrical coil.
you need to know that. either the distributor cap is a huge hurken thing (HEI) or it has an external coil somewhere or the cap has a ninth distributor hole in the middle of the cap to put a coil. wire.
after you figure out which one it is then you have to either go to www.autozone.com and study chevy wiring or buy a haynes manual for the similar vintage engine. for the external coil I would try a chilton manual for a chev truck before 1972. for HEI anytime thereafter. I may be off by a few years on the age of the engine. but hopefully you got an idea of what to do, or just google chev engine wiring? and study away.
good luck

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.

HEI DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEMS


on the intake manifold you will see 8 numbers, this is your firing order
from the front of the car the left side numbers are 1,3,5,7 and the right side are 2,4,6,8. now ont the distributor cap there should be a number 1 at one of the plug towers. you start there with #1 plug wireand continue.
on a chevy the firing order is 18436572 and this is the order you put the wires on the cap. now the second problem i don't know right off hand which way the rotor turns on your engine. so remove the cap and crank the engine over and see which way the rotor turns, this is the order you put the wires back on the cap. hope this helps

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.

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
