On later models, the connector is located near the distributor (except for 1995 models; on these, it's located under the dash, below the glove box). Tan wire with a black stripe.

How do you set the timing on a ninety four three quarter ton truck with a 350?

On GM trucks, you need to look under the glove compartment for the wiring harness. look for a single wire with a brown tracer that has a black connector. This is the electronic timing connector. Start the truck, unplug connector, set the distributor timing at zero, tighten distributor, reconnect wire.

Where is the timing connector wire to set ignition timing on a 1999 Chevy Tahoe?

It does not have one. The timing is controlled by the computer. You must have a OBDII engine scanner to adjust the timing. If you did not have the distributor out are move it then there is no reason to adjust the timing. It is done automatically by the computer.

How do you set timing on a 4.3 Chevy s10 pickup?

It all depends on what year the truck is. If it is the older version with the round distributer cap, you need a timing light. Connect the timing light to the number 1 cylinder, which is the front one on the drivers side. next you have to put the computer in base timing mode. To do this you need to locate the timing connector, which is usually located in the passenger side under the carpet ,below the hvac unit. Unplug the connector and start the engine, then shine the timing light on the timing marks and loosen the distributor and turn it unill the marks line up .Then tighten the distributor, and reconnect the connector. If it has the flat cap , the timing is set with a scanner .

What is the correct ignition timing on a 1989 Chevy truck?

* Start the engine and run it at high idle until the coolant temperature reaches normal operation temperature on the dash gauge. Turn off the engine and disconnect the timing connector. The timing connector on the C and K series trucks is located on the passenger side of the firewall breaking out of the main wiring harness and is a single wire connector with a tan wire with a black stripe. * Connect the timing light to the battery. The red cable goes to the positive post, and the black cable goes to the negative post. Attach the timing pick-up to the number one spark plug wire. Number one is the front plug on the drivers side. Start the engine, and aim the light at the timing marks while pulling the trigger on the light. The timing on the 89 Chevy truck is 0 degrees with the timing connector disconnected. If the two timing marks you marked with white crayon do not line up, adjust the timing. * Set the timing by loosening the distributor slightly, and turning the distributor while observing the timing marks. When they line up, tighten the distributor. Turn off the engine and reconnect the timing connector, remove the timing light, and test drive to verify the repair.

How to set the timing on a 1997 350 Chevy?

you don't the ECM will do it for you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx You need to set the base timing on any car/truck that has a distributor. There is a tan/black wire that is usually under the dash down low on the passenger's side. This is the Electronic spark timing and the connector has to be apart to set the timing. That will put the computer offline while you set the timing to the specifications. There is usually a decal under the hood. Once the timing is set then reconnect the connector The base timing is set NOW the computer will take over from there.

How do you set the timing on a 1989 Lincoln Continental V6?

First, I presume you are talking about ignition timing and not valve timing. I am also going to assume you have a timing light, and know how to use it. I am also assuming you know how to view timing marks, loosen and adjust the distributer. The spec on this engine is 10 degrees BTC. The timing marks on this engine are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer, and there is a single pointer protruding out of the front cover. I recommend you use something abrasive to clean the numbers on the harmonic balancer and highlight the 10 degree BTC mark with white-out or chalk to make it easier to see under the timing light. Find the timing connector (Ford calls it a SPOUT connector). This connector should be located within a few inches of the distributer base, probably taped to the distributer wiring harness. It will be a small, flat, grey, connector. It is a ctually a shorting bar that is at the end of two wires, and appears to be a dead end. ( you will see what I mean by that when you find the connector). Remove the SPOUT connector. When you remove it, it does not matter if the engine is running or not. It just has to be disconnected when you are making the actual timing adjustment. When you are done setting the timing, reinstall the SPOUT, and you are done. By the way, the number 1 cylinder on this car is the cylinder closest to the firewall toward the passenger's side of the vehicle.
