The oil change interval is listed in your owner's manual. Have the oil & filter changed at least every 5,000 miles.
The rotor inside the distributor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug.
The distributor should face forward rather than backward on the Chevy 350. It is important to mark the front face of the distributor before removing it.

you get new points and conencers and then remove distributor cap then remove old points and condencers and put the new ones in after u remove them you should get a good idea how to put the new ones in
Distributor cap should have 2 clips - release theseRotor should just pull off - has a key to install in proper position make sure new is installed with key in slot Replace distributor cap -(should have a pin to insure it goes in only one position) Move one wire at a time from old to new so they don't get mixed up
What kind of gas should I us for a Cadillac cts
On the distributor shaft, there is a painted mark, aline this with the two holes in the distributor shaft, located just below the gear. Mark the outside of the distributor where the rotor is pointed. On the inside of the distributor, you will find two cast marks, one stamped with an 8 and the other with a 6. For V-8's rotate the rotor until it is aligned with the 8. Now mark this location on the outside of the distributor. They should be about 45 degrees apart. The first mark is the direction the rotor should be pointing when you begin to install the distributor. When the distributor is fully seated, the rotor should be pointed to the 8 and the second mark. Snug the distributor into place and place the distributor cap on and tighten the screws for the cap. The plug wire post should be perpendicular to the center line of the engine.
Cadillac recommends premium fuel in this engine.
The part itself for that distributor $1000.00
Yes, it should be a perfect fit.
