That would be VERY cool! I'll tear in to it this weekend. A point that was brought up to me this morning was that the reading that trips the blinking engine light is based on spark. Any thoughts? Was the light in the truck you worked on flashing?

AAAH The two shoe Cadillac! Gotcha! Yes! Driving is WAY better than walkin, especially when its in a GM truck!
Think I'm gonna start a complete new distributor. Believe it or not , I found reman's for $45. ! Quick swap, and probably due at 250,XXX miles anyways. If that doesn't straighten it out...time to split the intake.

I would also think you would need a matching PCM for 350 or get the 305 reflash end for the 35099 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

Well, switched my Distributor. The check engine light now stays on solid, which is a step in the right direction. The distributor I pulled was plastic with an old style foot that did not slide onto the flats to lock timing location. I put the new distributor in with the adjustable foot and lined things up back to where they were as close as I could. I figure I could unplug the tan with black wire referred to in the Haynes manual and put a timing light on it. SURPRISE! There is no timing tab on the timing chain cover! So I just ran it where it was. Ran okay but pinged excessively under acceleration. So I decided to put the foot that came with the new distributor on. It has the long legs that locate the distributor. It appeared that this advanced the timing quite a bit which would explain the pinging. But then the engine cranked like the battery was half dead and it was zero degrees outside. So I replaced the adjustable foot, retarded the timing and now it runs ok but still has the pinging and doesn't have the power that I had before this whole episode began. Any thoughts on what to do next? THank you guys SO much.
