the 97 vortec 350 engine is not timed like a regular vehicle. The timing has to be checked using the computer. You need to pull a engine data screen on a hand held computer. With the scanner plugged in and vehicle running, check the cam retard degrees. It needs to be at 0 degrees, plus or minus 2. You can move it like a regular gm distributor, but it only has room for about 15 degrees of adjustment either way. If the timing is off, the check engine light will be on with a code for cam and crank sync problem. This dist. hold down bolt is on the passenger side.
