Hey guys, I have an 85 corvette with a stock 350 in it with 170,000 miles on it. The other day while driving it just shut off. When i cranked it there was a funny jingling sound accompanying the normal starter noise so i decided to check it out before i ruined something. To make it short, i found that the rotor in the distributer was not anywhere near the #1 plug wire position when i put the timing mark on the damper to 0 or top dead center. I then found that the rotor wasn't moving at all when i turned the crank. My question is, assuming that the timing chain broke, if i make sure the crank timing mark is at TDC (and both valves on #1 piston are closed)and i put a new timing chain on, will i have to pull the distributer out to reset it's #1 plug wire position or will just lining up the timing marks on the cam and crankshaft gears be enough to set timing in the right position? I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
