Wiring diagram for 68 Oldsmobile 455 rocket engine?
I'm pretty sure that all General Motors V8 engines use the same dwell setting. Most likely you have a distributor with the little pull up door and points with the Allen screw …adjuster. The setting is 28 - 32 degrees dwell so just set it as close to 30 degrees dwell as you can.
Where can you find a wiring diagram for the entire engine compartment for a 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with the 3.8L 2bbl V6?

I am not sure what your question is but the term rocket really has no meaning in relation to any specific olds v8-it just means that it is not a flathead motor. olds and Cadil…lac introduced the first engines in cars that were not flathead engines in 1949 and Oldsmobile needed a new catchy name for their new engine-since engines at that time had no (rocker arms) for valve trane this was something new and someone decided to call the engine rocket. as far as the 72 455 goes they had anywhere from 225 bhp to 300 bhp depending on application. the bore is 4.13" and stroke is 4.25" and should only have a 8 to 1 compression ratio with low compression pistons-olds determined compression ratio with dish in pistons not cylinder head-although D cast heads had a smaller combustion chamber than the rest
The bhp of the 455 olds in 1973 was 225 in delta wagons, delta 88, and olds 98-bhp for toronado was 250 and this engine was optional in cutlass-compression ratio was 8 t…o 1 with deep dish pistons. It has a 4.13" bore and a 4.25" stroke standard

How much horsepower does a 1971 Oldsmobile 455 rocket have It came in a 1971 Oldsmobile ninety eight?
It ranged anywhere from 310-365 hp.
Yes, but you must use the olds motor mounts. They are a 2-piece unit. The half that bolts to the block can be purchased new. the half that bolts to the frame is a little… more difficult to find. Retain these from the donor vehicle if possible. If the engine/transmission is from a larger vehicle (i.e delta 88, or 98) the TH400 tranny will likely be a long tailshaft version. this will require that the driveshaft be shortened and/or the crossmember relocated. Make sure the motor mounts on the block are attached at the middle location, not towards the front. All GM A-body cars from 1968-72 share the same chassis and firewall location, so any motor from any GM division of the era will fit. I highly recommend you upgrade to a 4 core radiator and heavier 'big block' coil springs in front.
Engine rotates but will not start
This size motor was manufactured from 1968 - 1976. In order to find the exact year there should be a number 1 high casting on the bottom left corner of the block.
