SOURCE: have an 88 Chevy c1500 305 Eng i want to change tbi to carburetor

2bbl intake will not fit 87-95 small blocks heads are diferent from pre 86.the center bolts on your manifold are angled different than the front and back bolts.your 2bbl manifold has the same angle bolts front to back.i converted my buddies 89 to carb,had to make adapter plate for carb.but to make a long story short there is a lot of power loss and fuel economy your better of with tbi.

The crank angle sensor maybe bad. It sends a signal to the computer so the spark plugs fire up.

With a warm engine and timing light ready (engine running) disconnect the single connector (black and brown wire) located on the passenger side firewall. It sticks out of the main wiring harness. Set the timing by rotating the distributor. Clockwise to ****** the timing and counter clockwise to advance the timing. Lock the distributor in place @ 4 deg. before top dead center.

Chevy k1500 5.7 v8 wont start

Sounds like your timing is off when you placed the distributor back in or your spark plug wires are crossed. Start with the simple and check the spark plug wire firing order. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Cylinder numbers drivers side 1-3-5-7 radiator to firewall. Cylinder numbers passenger side 2-4-6-8 radiator to firewall. Distributor cap #1 is at 5 O'clock and rotates clock wise. Once that is establish to be good then make sure the cylinder 1 is at TDC with the distributor rotor at the #1 position. Good luck and hope it's a crossed firing order.

1997 Chevy K1500 heater only works on high

Good chance it's the resistor . Will be in circuit between switch and blower, usual locations are on ducting under dash on passenger side, or behind glove box. Locate wires coming from blower motor, and follow them back to resistor.

Where in the hell does the antenna wire plug into on a 1990 chevy k1500 with factory radio, did not see a place on equalizer or radio itself.

In most cases the antenna plug directly into the back of the radio. But GM came up with this crazy 3 piece stereo system. You have the display/selector, the tape deck/EQ, and the tuner. The antenna will be pluged into the tuner which is buried deep into the dash above the acceleator slightly to the right. I have installed close to 100 stereos and this threw me for a loop. Follow the tape deck/eq wiring harness to find it. Happy hunting.

Why is my Chevy C/K1500 misfiring? It is not the spark plugs or spark plug wires those have been replaced. It is the number 3 Cylinder, what could it be?

Compression, air/vaccume leak, pluged injector.
My guess would be a bad injector, GM has an update kit for all of the injectors, with all new injectors, a body, and fuel regulator!
