what did you do that you need to time it?

nothing I don't really think it's the timing. but I think the timing chain is original to the truck I'm thinking maybe the coil or distributor really not sure. going to replace those two items and the ignition switch and see what happens

just looked at distributor found a broken wire that was detected until trying to take distributor out. Went ahead and replaced distributor anyway starts right up thanks everyone for at least looking to help. knew it had to be something small.

Can someone happy me plz?
