  1. Thanks i already have an idea of how to use an multimeter, I used to build RC cars and that video gave me an reminder of how To properly use it, I already had ordered the multimeter and the power and tach wires And will come by mail by tomorrow. Ill test the cables, distributor cap and I’ll be back with any updates. thanks again.
  2. Thanks for all your support and your time, as time is something that we cannot get back anymore. I read your message Too late my friend 🤯🥴, I watched a couple of videos and they suggest to clean the inside of the distributor and the metal parts, So I did it as they suggested.so when I asked if there was any chance for the distributor to be affected in any how if the cap was removed, is because I was afraid of what just happened🤦🏻😅 Lol. I was cleaning The rotor as stated on one of the videos and it moved clockwise very easy. And looks like it was aligned with a mark that was painted on the module. And it was aligned in direction with the first spark plug. I was looking on some videos and shows that I need to manually turn the engine sticking A finger on a spark plug hole but I don’t see how can I turn my engine. I might need to get professional help, something that I was trying to avoid as I am very short on cash, how could I align the rotor with that line again? I probably need to move it counterclockwise, but how? I found the power cord very loose, so I already ordered online and I am going to replace it. Please guys safe my life here 😆 LoL. This is one of the videos I watched also this is the hose I am going to replace, so there are no consequences if removed? Sorry sometimes stupid questions prevents stupid results.thanks for your patience.
  3. Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the help, I am going to replace the tach and power connectors, do you think it could be better if I replace the whole distributor? Because I believe the distributor comes with the wires. And they cost around $20 to $30 on O’rellys or auto zone. If I remove the distributor cap (with the cables attached) how do I Know if there is any damage? Does this affect the distributor in any way?. Also can I replace the brake vacuum reservoir hoses without compromising air getting in to the brakes fluids? Thanks for the help.
  4. Thanks a lot, I already created a new post, i couldn’t upload the conversation with that title “ Sbc cranks but it doesn’t start “, now I posted as SBC starting problems
  5. Hello guys again, I try to post but it created like about 3 post and can’t see the content, I apologize for that. Question number 1: can I change the brake vacuum reservoir hoses without compromising air getting in to the brakes fluids? It has edelbrock 60739 heads,1406 carb, performer 2101 manifold for reference. Hello guys again, Question number 1: can I change the brake vacuum reservoir hoses without compromising air getting in to the brakes fluids? It has edelbrock 60739 heads,1406 carb, performer 2101 manifold for reference. Question 2. I have a problem with my car it cranks but it doesn’t start. it has new ngk spark plugs (got them at Amazon) it was backfiring and saw some smoke coming out by the headers so I changed the valves covers and headers gaskets, new battery, the fuel pump is a red Holley and it sounds that it’s working (as it’s very loud) I cleaned the fuel hoses with air pressure . used starting fluid and it just cranks but it doesn’t start. I was told that it could be the started but as it cranks I searched up and found out that if it cranks the starter works.what ever it’s going on it’s drying out the battery, I had some alarm expert lol from a local alarm shop near my place and paid a lot because they had to remove the old alarm system and put a new one, the old one stopped working and i couldn’t turn it off, and it was working fine before, even he broke my steering wheel column cover. but all this thing happened when all the crazy stuff about the pandemic and couldn’t get in touch with them, so I am screwed there. Anyway I narrow things down, The fuel pump is loud and there is fuel in the carburetor, I bought a performance tool w86553 Ignition Tester and there’s no power on the spark plug tester, I checked on 3 spark plug cables, so I was looking at the hatch connector and shows some rust I cleaned but still doesn’t work, Should I buy a new distributor ? If so which one do you recommend? The car was turning on without a problem, I twisted the distributor a little to the left (counterclockwise) and turned back as I saw some antifreeze by the left rear bolt next to the distributor so I don’t know if that could be one of the reasons. I didn’t know that affects the timing.I am categorized as disabled, and been working on my Z, Had to deal with cancer and had something like a stroke and had to remember or relearn some stuff, spend over a year down and 6 months in the hospital so no much $ and my oldest son is helping me with the hard work.c found the spark plugs about $5 bucks cheaper on amazon and that’s why I bought them In case some one ask why I bought them on Amazon 😅lol Do you guy have any idea what it could be?

  8. Hello guys, I am having a headache trying to find out all the correct information about my engine. There are other people trying to fin out by using the casting numbers by the back of the engine but looks like the number has a printing error, I know it’s a 350 5,7, but I would like to know exactly what I have. does anyone has a good idea of how can I get all the information about my engine? Year? What vehicle was originally from? Hp, etc I need parts and the auto parts always give me issues as they need the year or model of my vehicle. I can’t tell them athat I have a Datsun 1975 with a sbc lol, Any help will be appreciated. I am opening another discussion to explain the issues. Thanks for your support, we can do “diy“ because we help each other. In a Chevy forum they replied telling that this is the engine information, How do I know to what vehicle it came from, or at list a vehicle for me to use when ordering parts
