I just installed a rebuilt engine in a 92 Chev, 1 ton, 5.7L. It ran good but burned a lot of oil. The engine rebuilder confirmed it was the rings. This has a throttle body & a distributor with electronic spark advance. I aligned the distributor rotor by turning the engine while watching the #1 intake valve close then another 1/2 turn to TDC. I then installed the distributor and aligned #1 wire with the rotor. I set the timing w/timing light while cranking the engine per direction on the emission label. The timing should be set with the enging running but I can't get that far. The injectors are delivering fuel. I get sputtering and backfiring but it will not run. I have tripple checked the plug wires & firing order. Any ideas?
