It's 4 degree BTDC ...

A computer controlled distributor on SBC engines is set at 0 degrees. There is a special procedure for setting the timing on computer controlled distributors. Consult the Chilton or Haynes manuals for specifics.

First, Chevy made the Caprice and Ford made the Capri. I have a 1985 Chevy Caprice Classic and it weights roughly 4500 lbs.

What is the engine in the Caprice? In the Suburban? If they are a 305/350 then they can be interchanged. I have a 1985 Caprice Classic with a 305 and the tranny came out of a 1987 Suburban. It depends on the engine.

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.

The 1985 Chevy Caprice driver side door panel is held in place with for retaining bolts and 10 retaining clips. Remove the retaining bolts. Pry outward on each retaining clip. The door panel will come off.
