    sounds to me like you just put the distributor back in the wrong position. If it worked before, you pulled the distributor..... you've checked all teh plug wires. Ding ding ding...... distributor is in wrong.... Check it out save some money

    Did that............

    Checked the distributor and changed the module.........still a no go until I replaced the coil and it cranked over but was not running right at all. SO it had jumped time.

    I know how you guys feel, I still have to drop it 3" put on rotors and brake pads and buy an exhaust. I have a leak in the trans pan so, I know it's always something

    get a compression gauge before you go through all this trouble if you get compression on all 8 chain is fine i bet you got your distrubitor in wrong it happened to me... do you know to get the engine a TDC (0) on #1 cylinder compression stroke and put the distrubitor in with the rotor pointing at #1 wire? try that if you havent already. the timing chain is just that a chain- its hard to break!!

    In order to set the timing to get it to start follow these steps:

    1. Pull out #1 spark plug.
    2. Cover the plug hole with your finger or thumb.
    3. Have someone "bump" the starter until you start to feel compression.
    4. Now look for the timing mark on the harmonic balancer coming up.
    5. Bump the starter again or turn the motor by hand until you line up the timing mark on TDC.
    6. Now drop the distributor in. The rotor should be pointing in the general direction of #1 cylinder.
    7. If it's pointing the opposite direction, pull it back out, turn it 180* and drop it back in. *****If it's off 20*or 30* you can use a long screwdriver, stick it down the hole for the distributor and turn the oil pump driveshaft until you reach your desired position.
    8. Now while putting the distributor cap back on it try to make sure the #1 plug wire is lined up with the distributor rotor.
    9. SHOULD FIRE RIGHT UP..........
    10. Check your timing with a timing light.

    If the mark is jumping around while looking at it with a timing light (keeping a constant engine RPM) then the timing chain is probably stretched.

    ..........

    Already lined up number one and when it finally cranked it had no kind of power. That's why I think the timing chain was an old used one when the guy I bought it from rebuilt the engine. SO i'm gonna just put a new one in and make sure it is in time. Hopefully get it done next week. I'll let ya know. I need it because I may be trasferring to St.Louis with in the month and I need a ride because the wife drives the Burb! I hope it will be fine after this!

    Not sure............

    I think the mech got it from one of the local private stores, not autozone or Advance.

    Feeling like it will never be finished. $3,600.00 and counting, still need brakes and exhaust. the muffler shop said to lower it first ,
    then bring it in foe exhaust. anyone know why?

    BlaznGN- Sometimes when you lower a vehicle, the exhaust pipe won t be able to go over the rear axle like factory, but its all in preference of where you want it to exit. That's my 2 cents.
    I finally hit a hundred posts and I still dont feel satisfied...
