on the side of the engine block just above the lip of the oil pan. you must take out the trans bolt that secures it first. it should come right out after that.

You cannot adjust ignition timing on the 5.7 liter V8 vortec engine. This system uses the distributor as a camshaft position sensor. You can loosen the distributor and rotate it, but it adjusts something called Camshaft Retard Offset. This can only be checked and adjusted using a scan tool that can read the cam retard offset parameter. Otherwise, you\'re flying blind. If you have a scan tool that can read it, the retard offset should be set to 0 degrees with the engine fully warmed up and running at 1000 rpm. If you cannot adjust it to 0 degrees, the distributor may be off a tooth or two, and will need to be correctly re-timed to the engine.

sounds like there is still an air pocket in the brake lines somewhere or the abs box is bad which will cause that too

Yes it could be just the plugs wires and dist cap. I'm surprised the check engine light is not on because of the missing cat.
Be sure and clear the codes after you replace the ignition parts.

Try spraying some starter sray in the breather and if it cranks, but only runs on the sray you may have a fuel or glow plug problem.

Yes, they will work, the problem is that the 1995 is a 95 ONLY so the parts (Valve Body) are not Interchangable

Did you use a test light to diagnois problem ? check that you have power coming to brake switch from fuse and then see if it switdches over when you apply brake. sounds like it isn't adj. right if it won't come out of Park. I will tell you this...there is a 6way plug by steering column ,follow brake sw wires up to top of column and that is where the 6 way plug is, make sure this plug is plugged in tight and square, because if not you will be chasing the problem forever..brakes run through this plug, it is easiest seen by removing lower column close out to dash and metal bolster brkt behind it to get to plug.
