Bad optispark installation Help!! 95 firebird lt-1
Thanks everyone for your previouse help and replies on my earlier threads. I attempeted to replace my optispark and due to inexperiance i did not carefully note the position of my crank snout for TDC. My optispark is the later model with the pin sticking out of the back. Basically when i took the distributor off i didnt pay attention to the positioning of anything and when it came time to put it back on i made sure it was in the right groove and tightened it up. I've since tried starting the car up and have herd no spark but the motor will turn. I read in my Haynes manual that the snout has a groove (which it does) that matches up to the center groove on the timing cover. i've tried to line these two up and when i check for TDC (I checked TDC by sticking a screw driver in spark plug one to feel for the piston-- please advise if this is the wrong way to check for TDC) the piston didnt seem to be at the top ? Please help ? and also should i here some type of spark or does TDC have to be exactly on point to get that? this is an lt-1 motor on a firebird.
