Hey Jerry==Since it is not new it is possible that it has been changed from factory. To find out where it is, if it is factory or not, pull #1 spark plug ,and the coil wire so it won't start, and stick your finger on the plug hole and have someone bump the starter to see when the piston comes up on compression stroke. When you feel preasure, turn the engine with the belts and pull the timing marks up to tdc. Pull the dist cap and where the rotor is pointing is #1 on the cap .the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the dist turns clockwise. GoodluckJoe
153624, distributor rotation is clockwise
No the distributor gear that is on the end of the distributor is to small for the big block cam shaft.
My 1969 Chevy pickup has it in the fuel tank behind the seat
on this old distributor there is a cap that holds the wires in place on the distributor. Is there a trick to remove top cap?
There was a 396 available in all Chevy trucks from 1968 - 1970.

It depends on what parts you are looking to replace, mechanical or body parts. List the parts you are looking for.
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.
There is a gear on the distributor shaft and a gear on the end of the camshaft that it engages with. The gear on the camshaft cannot be removed as it is part of the camshaft. The gear on the distributor shaft can be removed if it is worn; however, this is rare. These two gears must be in proper mesh for the engine to run; one cog off and it will not start.If you need further assistance google ' finding top dead center on a 350 chevy'.
I would set it at 10 BTDC with the distributor vaccum unhooked while setting timing. 10 to 13 degrees is what the factory recomends.
there is a Allen head screw sticking out of the distributor behind the slide up door that adjusts the points, you need a dwell meter to set them properly.
Seven Keys - film distributor - was created in 1969.
All V8 engines have the same firing order. 1,3,5,7 is the left bank, 2,4,6,8 is the right bank and the distributor rotates clockwise. 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2
Yes. The exhaust will be different, and if it's a big engine going in and a small engine coming out, you might need a bigger radiator.
If it has points in the distributor then it is 0.035 If it has an HEI distributor then it is 0.045
I don't have a diagram, but there would be one steel wire from the switch to the hot side of the coil.
no the gear stays in place , unless you take the timing gear cover off + the bolts that hold it to the cam shaft.no it won't change the position either unless you crank the engine, the gear stays in place.
No, a 1994 Chevrolet crossmember will not fit on a 1969 Chevrolet pickup.
Assuming this is a 350 Chevy engine, you need a 9/16" distributor wrench or you may sneak in there with a 9/16" open end wrench if the bolt is not to tight.
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 #
All tradional Pontiac v8 are 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Please note the distributor rotates counter clockwise-the opposite of a Chevy v8.
