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
start by checking fuel delivery,if you do have fuel delivery proceed by checking the timing setting.
the rotation is counter clock wise and the firing order is 1-3-2.
5 degrees BTDC. remember to set the idle to 800rpm for automatic transmission and plug the vacuum advance ose before setting the timing.

10 degrees before dead center

6 degrees before top dead center.
how do i adjust my distributor for timing
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
It is 6 degrees before top dead center.
Should be 12 degrees before top dead center
do you mean firing order or timing? firing order is 1,3,4,2 timing is 16 degrees =/- 2 btdc @ 750 rpm =/- 50
The timing setting for a 1988 Toyota Tercel is the "3E" hole lines at the top. This setting is for a Tercel EZ 1500 engine.
There is no timing adjustment, The computer controlls the timing.
the timing or the firing order? the timing gears have 2 dots that line up when the timing is correct at top dead center. the firing order 18436572 and the cylinders are numbered as following, driver side 1357 and pass side 2468
no ( for example my 1991 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 liter V8 engine timing was ten degrees before top dead center ( BTDC ) and the firing order was 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 )
If the marks on the sprockets line up with the plated links, the timing is correct.
The timing and firing order of PE6 UD NISSAN DIESEL ENGINE is 1-3-4-2
1243 ign timing between 6 & 11 deg before TDC
Yes, but the procedure requires many steps to position the valve train (#1 Cyl. to combustion) and positioning the distributor CAM to fire on #1 firing order. See dealer's service manual for setting timing.
firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise timing is 6 degrees before top dead center @ 700rpm
A sloppy worn timing chain.
12 dgrees before top dead center for a '68 - 69 era 400.
6 to 8 degrees BTDC---- Before Top Dead Center.
4 to 8 degrees before top dead center
