Thread: 350 Timing
08-08-2009, 07:44 PM #1
I may sound like an idiot, but what are the steps to setting the timing for a 1991 GMC K2500 with a 350 TBI. I know the concept of a timing light but I would like to get all the steps, start to finish. Thanks

Get yourself a Chilton or Haynes. It details the procedure, and you will be using it all the time with an older truck.When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

Go with Chilton
I'd opt for the Chilton They are put together with the novice in mind. They have more info than a haynes.

Ditto on the manual. The one trick that I can think of is that the 350TBI has electronicaly controlled timing advance. On the drivers side of the engine compartment should be a single-wire connector, tan wire I think, that has to be disconnected while timing it to make sure the computer isn't messing with the advance while you're trying to time it.Christopher
