An oldie, but a goodie- have fun.
The ignition timing is 4 degrees before top dead center. Adjust the point dwell to 30 degrees and the adjust the idle speed. then disconnect the vacuum to the vacuum advance and set the timing. Reconnect the vacuum and fine tune the carburator.
With an upgrade to electronic ignition and with running todays gas (low octane) a bump up in timing would be recomended. Try running about 6 degrees after and see how it does would not go above 12 after.
6 degreed advanced or BTDC.
302 small block Chevy
your dwell angle will be 29 timing ( initial ) will be 6 degrees below TDC
350, to 400 lbs.
There was a 396 available in all Chevy trucks from 1968 - 1970.
its either ur timing belt or ur sparkplug wires r wrong
285, to 300, according to the factory.......
It will bolt in the same as any big block Chev
my corvette book says it should be for basic 4 deg btdc
The legendary 1969 ZL1 427 big block Chevy had a bore/stroke of 4.25" x 3.76" , while the newer LS7 small block has a bore/stroke of 4.125" x 4" , both of which feature aluminum heads and block .
I would set it at 10 BTDC with the distributor vaccum unhooked while setting timing. 10 to 13 degrees is what the factory recomends.
if it has an automatic its 4 degrees before tdc, with the vaccuum advance off and plugged
It will be on the right side of the block where the head bolts on. with right head on engine the block will stick out a little bit in the front the # will be right there. may have to clean or sand block to read.
No the distributor gear that is on the end of the distributor is to small for the big block cam shaft.
I can't recall any Chevy using a 302. It was the classic Ford small block used in early Mustangs. Chevrolet did produce a small block 302 used exclusively in the 1967 - 1969 Camaro Z/28.
casting number 3970010 is a 350 block from 1969 - 1979 but in 1969 302 and 327 have the same casting # and im not to sure about the other #
yes it can be used on any inturnaly balanced Chevy engine
Information about the 1969 Chevy truck can be found on Wikipedia. There is a whole article on Chevy trucks and it includes specific information on the 1969 model.
Yes it will. But you will need to know if the 454 requires a flywheel that is either internal or external balanced.
Cars did not get catalytic converters until 74. Trucks were 81, or 82.
The timing marks on a 1969 Ford 360 should line up between the timing chain and the cam sprocket. This sets the initial timing which can later be adjusted using a timing light.
300 horse power. 300 hp started in 1992 with the new LT1 motor
