It depends on whether the distributor gear has ever been removed and if it was put back in the same orientation as the original factory installation. But to make it easy, just put the #1 cylinder at TDC of the COMPRESSION cycle. If you're having trouble distinguishing between the compression TDC and intake TDC, pull the #1 plug and put your finger over the hole then turn the crankshaft by hand until you can feel air pressure building up against your finger. Continue to slowly turn the engine until you get to the point where the cylinder is all the way toward the top. You should be able to tell because turning the engine either way will cause the cylinder to suck against your finger. Align the dampner pulley mark to the #1 indicator, and wherever the distributor rotor is pointing... that's where you plug in the #1 wire. Do it that way and it doesn't matter if the distributor has been removed and put back wrong.
where does the hot wire come from going to the distributor on a chevy 350
Firing order on a 350 Chevrolet is 18436572
Yes, it will work. If the 454 was a tall deck design, you'd need to shim the distributor up .400" to mate with the 350 oil pump shaft.
INSERT PLUG WIRE IN SERIES WITH NO. 1 CYLINDER AND CONNECT BATTERY + TO RED WIRE AND BLACK WIRE TO BATTERY - TERMINAL
Drivers side, first cylinder up front.
It is the forward-most cylinder on the passenger side of the engine.
Number one is designated by where ever the spark plug wire from the number one cylinder is placed. Number one cylinder is the first cylinder on the the drivers side at the front of the car.
Firing order for you're Rocket engine is 18436572 distributor rotation is counterclockwise. Cylinder one on the distributor cap points to cylinder one.
Yes it will fit. This distributor will fit all small block and big block Chevrolet engines.
30 degrees dwell
be hind the describer on top of the engine distributor
You need to run a switched, full-voltage wire to the "bat" terminal.
You losen the bolt were the distributor goes into the engine and twist the distributor little by little until its firing good, you have rev it up to tell.
what colour is the wire i use to hock up a tach on a 1989 Chevy 350
negative side of the coil
On the drivers side next to the distributor.
With the engine warmed up and at idle, disconnect the vacuum line to the vacuum advance.Hook up your timing light to number one cylinder. Slightly loosen the distributor. The timing should be about 4 degrees. Move the distributor until the pointer is at 4 degrees. Tighten the distributor and reinstall the vacuum hose.
12v to HEI connection (+) on distributor. Firing order the same 18436572.
If you will remove the #1 plug, (driver's side front of engine), then turn that cylinder to top dead center, (TDC), on the compression stroke, you can then remove the distributor cap and look at the rotor. The rotor will now be pointing to the #1 plug position. GET THE NUMBER ONE CYLINDER TOP DEAD AND THE ROTOR IN THE DISTRIBUTOR SHOULD BE PIONTING AT IT
Ignition module, pick-up coil. Both of these items are in the distributor. Bad coil are coil wire. Bad distributor cap but not likely, could be thow. Check these things first. If you don't find the problem in this area then ask your question again.
