22r Timing Problems
« on: Oct 08, 2018, 06:39:58 PM »
I have a remanufactured 22r in my 1980. I recently put the motor in, buttoned everything up and turned it on to set the timing, but there's been many issues.
I set the engine to 0* TDC on the compression stroke, I then insert the distributor with the rotor pointing up at 12* and slide it in. It seats and appears to be pointing at the number one plug on the cap. I tighten everything down, set up the timing light and start the truck and when I check the timing it is way off. It doesn't even idle at the 0* mark, it idles poorly far to the right if you are facing the truck. I can rotate the distributor a small amount, which helps, but it's not enough to even get the mark to 0*. I feel that I may be doing something wrong, but I don't know what it is. I've attached a link to a short video.

When you put the crank on 0* and the rotor at 12 o'clock, the dizzy adjustment slot should be centered not hard to either side, then slide it in and the rotor should move to the Vac. advance position, ie. #1. Hope this helps.

The rotor should look like this when installed.




With it a reman engine, it might be worth it to pull the valve cover and check that the #1 valves are loose and #4 are tight when the engine is at TDC.

Thanks for the replies. I am most likely off one tooth. It's embarrassing, but I guess it happens.
