My truck doesn't quite have the oomf it did before. Checked my fuel pressure. Yikes! Junkyard spider assembly is most likely the culprit. New fuel pump new filter. But another thing that quite bothered me besides the fuel pressure struggling for 60 when keyed on/50 psi when running, is the white spots on every spark plug! That's a clear indication of needing a new intake gasket in my opinion, or both heads blew at the same time (yeah right based on my compression test and leak down test). So I'm gonna do the lowers, and uppers, plus test my other spider assembly. Runs decent after cleaning the plugs, but decent isn't perfect...

Best way to get the front distributor bolt cap out on a 5.7 vortec is with a magnet once it's unscrewed from the body of the distributor

The screws that come with a normal vortec cap is designed for plastic distributor bodies (smaller screws coarse thread). If you have a billet aluminum body distributor, then you need the fine thread screws (longer)....

vortec V6 and V8 from 96'-00' suffer from crank but no start, and sometimes no CEL will Illuminate. Some also suffer from rough runability, and multiple engine codes...

This transparent distributor cap shows how close the contacts are to each other inside the cap. A cheap cap stands the risk of cracking internally from hot to cold cycles. A cracked cap can cause a missfire, check engine light, heavy ping underload, and rough driveability. Cracks can not always be seen, but can be there. Doing a resistance test on the contacts won't always reveal a bad contacts.
