What are the timing settings on a 93 Caprice Classic 5.0 engine?
clockwise ...or counterclockwise... check with a timing light and then turn... also everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read up..you'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:)
Where is the timing chain located on a 1983 Caprice Classic with a 305 and what are the steps to remove it?
That should be a 350 cubic inch engine with a carburator, HEI ignition with a vacuum advance. You will need to hook up a timing light to number one (1) cylinder. That is the front plug on the driver's side. Start the engine and let it warm up. There is an indicator on the front lower side of the engine. It is marked with the degrees. Disconnect the vacuum from the advance and plug it…
How do you find the the tdc marks on a 94 caprice classic 4.3lI see the arrow on the Crankshaft but nothing on the motor.?
to find timing marks, look to see if there is a :L: shaped tag bolted to front of engine ,just above the harmonic balance on front of crankshaft. this is the equivalent to top dead centre on when lined up with marks on harmonic balance(pulley wheel). thetdc mark should line up with this then advance or retard timing on smaller marks or with timing light
Have a 1984 Chevy Caprice Classic with a 5.0 Liter LG4 engine. I think it could be a 307 because the timing says to set it at 20 degrees BTDC and the Hayes manual lists 20 deg. as the set for 85 307?
307 Chevrolet was phased out in 1973. There was 307 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, but that motor was not offered in the Caprice. You have a 305 if it's a gas-burning V8. The only other engines offered for that year were the base V6 and the diesel-burning 350. this above answer is wrong. the caprice did indeed use a 307 in the 80s.
with the v/advance unplugged bring your idle up to 3000rpm and set you timing at 32 while revving. now tighten down the distributor and plug you v/a back in, and voi-la your done. that year doesn't have a vacuum advance... he said 92 caprice not 82........you need to find the EST remove it and set the timing to 0 then plug the est back in and the computer takes over
Chevy caprice estate 350 v8 that violently backfired and died How do you set the timing on this engine?
Sounds like your timing chain might have jumped a notch. Timing is set by rotating the distributor. There is a nut underneath the distributor that locks it down. Timing mark is on the harmonic balancer, sorry I don't have the setting handy. I would start by checking the timing with a timing light. VBdenny
My reference books say to check the underhood sticker for timing. If yours is missing or unreadable, I'd try 15 deg BTC on a 231 cid, and 6 deg BTC for any other engines, including the 262. These are from an 84 spec book. This should put you in the ballpark, anyhow. If your Caprice has the 307, it was built by Oldsmobile. Same firing order as the Chevy V8, but the distributor is counterclockwise.
How do you get the crank shaft pully and balancer off a 1994 43L v-8 caprice classic if you are trying to change the timing chain?
Torque settings on head bolts Ford Fiesta 2005 1.6i duratec engin as well as the procedure on the timing?
Hey Mike==This can be caused by several things depending on what car and what engine you have. It can POSSIBLY be caused by the timing chain or belt jumped or sometimes the timing being slow can cause it. GoodluckJoe I have a 91 caprice 305 in its doin the same thing. Its sprayin from the throttle body all over the engine causing it to flood
Is the 305 engine in an 89 Caprice a non interference engine where if the timing chain goes it won't damage engine?
You'd have a hard time breaking a small block Chevy timing chain. As the chain gets loose it will run worse and worse. But to anser your question. No, the chain coming off won't make the valves hit the pistons, but it would make one awful racket as the chain got wound up on the crank gear and smashed through the timing chain cover and from face of the oil pan. ;)
to change timing chain is pretty involved if you are not mechanically inclined take it to a mechanic. you need to remove radiator, water pump and anything else like alternator a/c pump etc to give you access to front of engine. then remove timing case cover remove timing gears and chain. replace with new ones at correct settings put engine back to ther now if your engine is an over head cam there are more…
