Please Help Timing Issues With My 454 1995 C3500
Posted 14 February 2011 - 09:22 PM
i left the truck at a garage(along with my credit card #) and came back sunday to my truck in the parking lot with the keys under the seat and a new distributor,cap,rotor,coil...problem is the timing was off. i got home and now i cant seem to get rid of this timing issue/stumble when i give it like 1/8 throttle.
the truck is a 1995 gmc c3500 w/7.4l454 when i set the timing theres a main groove on the balancer then lines on either side i think 4*btc would be to the right of the center groove (2 lines over to the right to be exact) am i correct? because when i did this it still seems to have a stumble... i had the est plug unplugged when i set the timing
am i correct about the timing marks? is before tdc to the right on the balancer or to the left???
and what should the timing be set at? someone told me 0* and someone else said 4* any help would be greatly appreciated after getting killed on the price i cannot afford to bring it anywhere and the guy who did this is 4+hours away
i could really use some help thank you for all and any hot tips
