You don't need to ask the same question multiple times, once is enough. "On the Tahoe the distributor does not control timing. It controls the synchronization of the cam sensor and the crank sensor. The only way to set it accurately is with a class 2 scan tool. There will be a PID in data for cam/crank offset. The distributor has to be turned until this reads 0. Any more than 4 degrees off and it will set a P1345 code and run rough."

Sounds like you have it set 180 out or on the exhaust stroke, pull the #1 spark plug, turn motor over till cylinder is tdc. Then set cap and distributor, not accurate but close enough to get it running.
