18436572 0 degrees BTDC The base timing must be set to 0 degrees with the timing connector conduit disconnected to bypass automatic timing. With timing set to 0 degrees, reconnect the conduit and the computer controles the timing. This conduit is located on the wiring harness on the right side of the firewall, under a Y shaped plastic cover. It is a one wire connection that protrudes from the wiring harness. It is a tan/black stripe wire.

First place there is no need to set the timing if the distributor has not been moved. And there is no wire to unhook.The ignition timing is controled by the ECM / engine control module. If the timing is off you will have a check engine light on. If the light is not on, then the timing is correct. No need to bother, The computer is taking care of it.You have to have a OBD II engine scanner to set the timing.

1999 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L tring to set timig?

You can not set the timing with a timing light on that year engine. The timing is controlled by the PCM./ Power train control module. You must have an oBD2 engine scanner to set the timing. If the timing is off then the check engine light will be on.If you have not removed the distributor are moved it around for any reason then the engine timing is correct already. No need to adjust it. Computer does it.
