Yes it could be the timing, but there are so many other things that could cause it to not start, that is way down the list, besides, you don't set the timing but the timing offset on a 5.7L.

If it doesn't have any spark I'd check the ignition coil.

Cheak the altenator plug its prbly lose or got coroded mine did that to it wouldnt even turn make no noise but thats probably the problem follow the wire an tighten it an cheak ur fuse for gas ignition an all that
