Engine Mechanical problem
1979 Other Chevrolet Models V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 595, 00 miles
79 Chevy C30 2wd, no EGR 454 5.7L. Just replaced intake manifuld and now replacing OEM distributor with an ACCEL one. Here's where I'm at: placed #1 cyl at TDC. Made mark on firewall accross form rotor position and on back of rotor/distributor in relation to #1 plug position on distributer cap. Lined up rotor and vacum advance on new one, corresponding to old and placed. It meshed fine, slid right in. However, as it seats itself, the rotor rotates clockwise about an inch off the mark on the firewall, even with vacume advance in perfect position. Tried couple of times, same result. Tried putting old one back in just to check but with same result. Is this minor rotation OK or will I have major timing problems? I'm a novice and this is a project with my son.
have the same problem?
