See, we have eliminated a completely broken timing chain, but maybe it jumpeda few teeth. Even if it did you should get SOME attempt at firing.65racecoupe said:I have neither.
The comp. is 10.5 to 1. It is a 331 engine with 3100 miles.
When the car stopped, it was not violent, it just felt like I ran out of gas.
It is not even trying to fire when I turn the key.
Oops missed that post.meanroy said:ok gas, spark, compression.
Now we need to find out where the timing is.
Can you borrow a timing light from a buddy?
65racecoupe said:What are you suggesting I do after I get #1 to TDC?
I will check, but I am sure the rotor will point to the #1 plug wire.
This is another way to find TDC, and what I had in mind, just like YellowMach69 says, after you have found TDC #1 you can see where the rotor points. Should be #1 cyl.YellowMach69 said:Listen ,Do what some people have said here ,This is how i do it ,
1)PUll number1 plug out.
2)put your finger on sparkplug hole,have sombody turen it over ,and when you feel compresion ,then stick somthing in sparkplug hole that you wont drop in slowly crack engine with a breaker bar till you feel the screwdriver stop at top dead center.
3) Now make sure your distributor is pointing to the number one plug on cap,
4)If everything is cool there thenput the sparkplug in a boot and crank engine over and see if your getting a actual spark ,Place the sparkplug on cyclinder head or somthing metal grounded. If your getting spark then dump like 1/2 a areasol can worth of fuel in carb and crank it and see if it will at least fire
