    Still sweating it out in the garage. Upper manifold was a tight fit, needed some extra lube. Valve lash is set, now onto the covers, plugs, accessories and maze of sensors.

    I made it to 12:15 and hit a wall at about 95% complete. Tomorrow (or I guess later today) I'll finish it up.

    It's all back together but it's running like shit (rough miss) and throwing a PO135 light. Im thinking I have the distributor off a tooth.

    It's sensing a camshaft to crank shaft correlation issue. I knew I should have pulled the cap and marked the rotor orientation.

    The google has told me that the distributor has an "8" or a "6" on the distributor housing, I should have pointed the rotor at the 8 since this is a V8. I'm pretty sure I'm waaaaaay off that mark, I pointed the rotor at #1 :screwy:

    found this picture on the interwebs to show you all

    [​IMG]

    so tonight I'll put it at TDC, pop off the distributor cap and see where I had it set.

    I can smell the rubber already :burnout:

    oh and it's a 102 outside right now, should be 104sh by the time I'm out there :flipoff7:

    Runs so much better now :burnout::saweet:

    I hear a little noise on the passenger side head. Think I need to go through and double check the rockers adjustments once more. Other than that, it's running pretty damn good

    Sounds like loose rocker. I should be able to fire it up with that cover off and know pretty quick.

    Finally had a chance to pull the valve covers and adjust the rockers with the engine running. Also picked up a set of new AC Delco wires, runs good and no check engine lights. Need to pickup a magnaflow muffler, the OE muffler has a hole in it and sounds like crap.

    Thanks.

    I've been daily driving it for the last few weeks and I keep getting the P1345 when I start the engine. I can clear the code while driving and it will usually stay off until I restart the engine again. After reading about the issues surrounding this particular code I've decided it could just be a worn out distributor so I bought a new distributor from rockauto which I received yesterday. Hopefully that clears it up.
