well that's no preoblem just follow these steps,pull out #1 cylinder spark plug which is the first plug on the right if you are facing the engine,than put a compression gauge in the hole and turn it over until you see compression ,if you do not have a gauge than put your finger over the hole and get someone to turn over the engine until your finger gets blown off the hole this is the compression stroke.than look at your harmonic balancer the line should line up with zero on the cover when you are at top dead center of the stroke.than install the distributer with the rotor pointing to the #1 cylinder,than you must install the wires making sure that the rotor under the cap is pointing to the wire you are going to put on #1 than continue puting the wires on in the firing order which is 18436572 remember that the cylinder are aposing one another,start with #1 on the right front(facing engine)than #2 is on the opposite side the right cylinder bank is 1357 and the left side is 2468.than u must time the engine.
Yes, it will work. If the 454 was a tall deck design, you'd need to shim the distributor up .400" to mate with the 350 oil pump shaft.
You losen the bolt were the distributor goes into the engine and twist the distributor little by little until its firing good, you have rev it up to tell.
30 degrees dwell
be hind the describer on top of the engine distributor
5.7L is a 350 engine.
It's on the rear left hand side of the engine near distributor.
Firing order on a 350 Chevrolet is 18436572
5.7 Liters in a 350 engine.
yes you need newmoder mounts and at the back of the moder the distributor will touch a little just needs mild modifications there
i have a gm goodwrench 350 with a summit hei distributor in my 58 Chevy truckits about 1/2 inch from my firewallso... little room to spare but yes it worked
It's mostly a bolt-in. Bring over the accessory drive with the new engine, along with the exhaust manifolds. Transfer the distributor from the 350. "some assembly required"
go to a mechanic!
more than you
How can you tell a 350 from a 305 engine?
The engine in your truck is a Chevrolet 350 if it a stock engine!
yes there is an "O" ring that forms a gasket under the distributer
the timing shoujld be 8 degrees BTDC. If your engine has a vacume advance hose running to the distributor than you will have to remove it from the distributor and seal it off before setting the timing.
