Check the front of the Intake manifold, It should say, Firing Order, then 8 numbers. Thanks the firing order. On the cap. Remove the number 1 spark plug and have someone crank a little unitl you hear/feel air. The possition of the rotor is where your number 1 is, go Clockwise to place the wires in the correct order.
If you don't know which point is the # 1 plug. Boxwrench.com has a distributer diagram and other usefull stuff.
Reuse your old 305 distributor.
Check the ignition module in the distributor.
Not very well, if at all.
Follow the wire that comes out of the distributor (obviously not the wires that go to the plugs)
1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 same as the firing order
305 is the same distributor as a 350 will even fit some big block chevy's.
Yes it is.
yes, HEI distributor
Assuming it ran okay before you installed the new parts, double check the firing order. You may have crossed a couple wires.
The firing order for your engine is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 the spark plugs on the driver's side of the engine are 1,3,5 and 7 starting from the front of the engine. The passenger side is 2,4,6 and 8 ----------------------------------- The distributor turns clockwise
Corrosion inside the distributor cap. Get a new cap and rotor.
Its not very powerful at all. I have a 305 in my 1995 Sierra 4x4 probably around 225 hp,
if your talking plug wires it 18436572 1 is in the front just off to the left of the distributor as your sitting in the car & they go clock wise
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on distributor cap.
It is in the Distributor.
Those three wires are pluged in wrong at the distributor; or they are no good and grounding out somewhere. Those three wires are pluged in wrong at the distributor; or they are no good and grounding out somewhere.
