If you over or under advanced the timing that's all it would take. Been there done that. Did you loosen distributor cap? Make sure it is seated. Did you replace any wires? Check the firing order if so. Retrace your work, but chances are your timing was just bumped to far so try this: have someone crank motor while you slowly turn distributor and it should start if nothing else was changed. Good luck. I hope this helps you, Mark
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
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 That is the correct "firing order" , but I believe he wanted to know the "initial timing" setting. I googled it, and came up with 08 degrees BTDC (before top dead center)for a '79 350 Chevy. That should put you in the ballpark, but experimenting with your timing setting for optimum performance is usually required, especially if the engine isn't completely "stock". Good luck. Also if you are setting timing for the first time disconnect the vacume advance hose from carb / or manifold then set base timiming at 8 degrees. The advance in H.E.I will set the rest of the advance setting for that year of truck.
