how do you hook up a manuel choke on a small block chevy
I would replace the module in the distributor. Take the distributor cap off and it will be the idem that has 2 small screws that hold it on the base of the distributor, and it will have electric wires that hook to it. The module controls the fuel and fire.
There are two excellent pdf's for this carb at summitracing.com.
Bolt The Coil Bracket And Coil To The Block, The - Goes To The Distributor The + Hooks To The Ignition.
It is inside of the distributor, Remove the dist. cap and you will see some wires that hook to the side of the distributor. That is the module that thay are pluged into. unplug them and remove the 2 small screews that hold the module in .
Connect the green wire to the negative side of the coil.
if it is a hei ignition there is a place on the distributor cap that says tach.
It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow a plug wire from the spark plug to the distributor cap. It is hard to see. All the plug wires start at the distributor and then hook to each plug.
No. Ifyou are going to do that change to a big block,You will have to change the Trans.Also
Right above the oil filter.
distributor wire to the distributor red and brown to the starter alternator hook up is the same on the v 6 and the 305 all located on left side of wiring harness coming out the fire wall and you will have to have a vacum advane distributor to bypass computer
It should hook on the small hose or what they call the low side. Some in that year have hook up on dyer.
on the drivers side of the distibutor cap using a blade electrical hook up you can plug into the opening or if there is a wire already there splice into it make sure all your grounds are in place or you will burn up you coil
you need to hook it up on the distributor
There should be a vacuum source on the carb above the throttle body that gives spark ported vacuum. You can connect a tube from this source to the distributor.
get a pointer ==Answer= try using a vacuumm gauge hook the guage up to where the distributor is plugged into start the engine advance the distributor until the vacuum guage stops climbing the back it off one degree good luck
There should be two on the large terminal and one on the small terminal I believe the small terminal is labeled S
You would hook to the negative side of the coil. Some HEI distributor caps are marked "tach".
If it is a point type distributor you will want to hook it to constant vacuum...somewhere on a port in the base plate. If it's HEI you'll want to hook it to one in the carb body. Something that has no vacuum at idle but pulls vacuum as you give it throttle.
It goes to the temp gauge which is usually screwed in the head between the manifold on the drivers side, or into the thermost housing on the intake manifold.
click on edit answer to see the layout,small block and big block Chevrolet engine firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-21 is the post facing #1 cylinder (front drivers side) then hook up number 8 on distributor which is clockwise then 4 and so on. odd cylinders on drivers side of engin ...1,3,5,7, and passengers side are 2 in the front then 4,6,8 6 5 3 7 4 2 8 1 rear 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 front hope this helps.
u have to look at ur distributor if it is an HEI "coil on top there is markings on the distributor cap for the tach but if it is a regular distributor with an external coil you hook it up to the neg wire off the coil neg/ black wire
one white wire goes to the distributor, the other goes nowhere. This is the lead that goes to the tach
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is your firing order, same as small blocks. from the factory number one wire should go to the tower on the distributor facing number 1 cylinder. that would be the front cylinder on the drivers side. from there hook up number eight clockwise right next to it, then number 4..3..6..5..7..2.
The EGR valve is mounted to the intake manifold usually on the passanger side of the engine back near the distributor. You will have to pull the air cleaner off to see it or reach it easily.
