I was thinking you had a 454 on a P30 but I have seen this thread jump back and forth. Thats why you need that info in your signature. The timing mark plate at the harmonic balancer can be located at different points on a 454. Can you locate it?

Dave



There is another possible location of the timing plate shown on pdf page 164 of the Chevy MH Chassis service guide (http://www.bdub.net/manuals/P30/index.html)

I know where the mark is. The issue is trying to hold a flashlight and turn the motor at the same time. I'm doing this 100% solo, which is why it's taking so long. Once I get that, and my distrib aligned, I should be good.

At the request of Dave I updated my signature. I didn't know the forum had one. Here's my location, too.

Lets see if mine works? Yep... User CP, Settings & Options, Edit Signature & Save. Then Show Signature must be checked in the Misc Options area below each new post entry - It will not appear on prior posts, just the ones you make after you update it... PS have already shortened and downsized my sig but couldn't get it to apply the changes to this post with an edit.

I guess I can't do a signature from my iPhone. I don't see the options you mentioned. I see the option to send photos and my location but not one for a signature. Oh well.

If your iPhone has the setting, have it 'Request Desktop Page'. You should then get the full web page as it would be seen in a desktop browser instead of the mobile page. I know I can do this in Windows Phone and Android.

Years ago, when I use to work on my own vehicles, I made up a kit to work on the engine. Just a push button switch with 12' of wire attached that I could clip on the starting solenoid and jog the engine. Along with that I had a 12" wood dowel with a NE-2 neon bulb taped to the end, used that to see if I was getting spark because if you held it near a high voltage spark plug wire it would flash as the wire was charged. Then I had a flashlight attached to my hat, now days they are pretty common and use LEDs.

Crude but effective. And allowed working on the engine alone.

Pretty sure they sell kits like this at most automotive stores.

Thanks, good ideas.

Ron if you could put a battery charger, preferably a automatic one like a battery tender on the battery and just leave it on until this project is done. Then your battery will always be charged and ready to go. You will get this thing going, and it won't be long.:
