On subject vehicle, 350 auto 4X4, where is the damned electronic spark
timing (EST) connector? I want to check my timing and the "book" says there
a connector under or near the firewall relay cover. This connector is
supposed to have a tan wire with a black stripe. I can't find the &*^%$ ing
Any ideas as to where this connector may be?
I replaced the engine in my motorhome and had the same problem. Check the
wires carefully. I could not see mine either. I folowed the wire from the
distrib. and it was right there in front of me the whole time
hope this helps
I found it behind the glove box. Now, I have to see about getting a
distributor wrench to loosen the bolt...couldn't get to it with anything I
had. Regardless, the timing was a few degress below the 0 degress BTDC
mark. Do you think that matters? Doesn't seem to affect driveability.
ON the fuel injected computer controlled engines you need to set the
timing as it says on the "factory decal" What you are doing is
setting the base timing. So whatever the base timting is set to the
ECM adjusts from that. ITs important to set the base timeing
according to the specification.
