Yes indeed, I'm familiar with the cam retard timing on the distributor, I consider myself very fortunate that I was able to get it right after about 20 adjustments.I would simply clear the code, and re-adjust it till it quit setting the light off. The main reason I did it that way is I don't know anyone around my area that even knows how to do it, or has the proper equipment, so that for now is a pretty much non issue, I need to get the truck to at least try to start so that I know I'm at least going in the right direction. I pulled out the old distributor, and it looks brand spanking new, but since I had a new one I ordered online, I installed the new one, in the exact same place as the one I pulled, along with new cap, and rotor, nothing really changed, it will PUFF really loud through the air intake when you let off the key after trying to crank it up, every once in a while a small backfire through the exhaust. One thing I may have failed to mention, I read on diagnosemycar. Com that the WHITE wire that goes from the PCM to the ICM is a "trigger" wire that when tested should flash off and on as you are cranking over the engine, mine does not do that.
