CHEVROLET TRUCK DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEM

1998 Chevrolet Truck • 20,000 miles

I need to know the degrees the timing should be after changing the distributor.
It runs but with no power.

Did you put the engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and then install the distributor making sure the rotor is pointing to the no.1 cap tower?

Timing should be around 0 to 5 degress before top dead center.

Check fuel pressure

check back pressure on cat converter too

Ignition timing is computer-controlled with reference pulses from the crankshaft position sensor and is not adjustable.
