Put the timing light away; it's useless to you on a Vortec. You need a scan tool that can read the "cam retard" figure. With RPM's held at 1,000 or more, the cam retard must read within +/- 2 degrees of zero. You adjust the distributor until you get this.

If you set it this way, clear the codes, and P1345 returns then the distributor is the most likely suspect as it's probably badly worn. Before you remove it make TWO marks - distributor body position, AND rotor position - install the new distributor as close as humanly possible to those two marks, then use your scan tool to fine-tune the timing as specified.
